One man's death inspires many to save their own

Larry H. Miller died recently at the age of 64, from complications of type 2 diabetes. His life influenced many as he was a very prominent community member and successful businessman, but his death has done a lot of good in the diabetes world. It scared the livin' daylights out of a LOT of people. I hear a comment from one of my patients at least once a day about Larry Miller and how they do not want to end up like him. Our annual state Diabetes Expo last weekend was attended by about 5,000 people (up from 2,000 last year), all interested in getting better control of their diabetes. If one man's death inspires many to save their lives... Sorry, but thanks.
