FORT WALTON BEACH, FLA.--Grief over claims that he was responsible for two men who drank themselves to death has ended in the death of bartender Claude Kidd, his widow says.

"It upset him that they were saying something that he wasn't guilty of," Catherine Kidd said after her bar-owner husband died of a heart attack. Kidd, 52, had a history of heart trouble.

"They were close friends, all of them," said Mrs. Kidd. "He went to talk to their families. They felt all right with him, didn't feel angry."
