"Lastly, what do you hope people will take away from reading your book? And whose decision was it to put ice cream cones on the cover? (I occasionally eat ice cream myself, but I still thought that was pretty funny — especially the one with what appears to be caramel!)
I know that reading the book people will have all the latest information they need to know about managing diabetes– they’ll have wisdom and recommendations from diabetes experts across the whole spectrum of diabetes care, and they’ll read about fellow patients’ “lessons learned.” I hope they’ll feel inspired and ready to take on whatever is still a challenge and do a little better. Also, the book isn’t written like a dry, medical book. It’s conversational, engaging and there’s a lot of my story in it which makes it as though they’re coming along on my journey to a much better place. As for ice cream cones, actually it was my brilliant editor’s idea and I couldn’t be more pleased. I didn’t want the typical healthy apple or meter displaying the perfect blood sugar number on the cover. So, instead, right on the cover we debunk a major myth about diabetes – yes you can eat sweets and enjoy them, even with a little caramel!"

Suicide speculation naturally rampant given lack of statements from family or authorities. He was unhealthy & lived unhealthily, but why not say he died of a stroke, aneurysm or heart attack, were any of those the case?
Or he might have inhaled next to Chartnuts.
