In Memoriam>Fire Me Boy! has passed away
luv 08:11 AM 03-02-2020
His wife posted the news on his Facebook a little earlier this morning. I know that he will be missed by many on here, especially the foodies.

FMB was one of the first people to really welcome me on here when I first joined and started posting regularly. I never met him in person, but he was one great guy and a fellow grammar Nazi. :-)

I'm sure his wife would appreciate any thoughts or prayers.

RIP, Fire Me Boy!

PART OF OBITUARY THAT LEAVES OUT PEOPLE'S NAMES AND CHANGES HIS TO FMB:

This really fucking sucks. He was SUCH a nice guy and we've had a million amazing PM's and Rep notes over the years.

R.I.P., Brother

FMB had Type I Diabetes, which is completely different and at this point in time, cannot be cured.

Many sufferers of Type Diabetes are diagnosed at birth because their pancreas stops making (or some cases, never made) insulin. FMB was on kidney dialysis for quite some time but that doesn't reverse anything, it just allows the patient to live a bit longer.

There's no known cure for reversing the effects of Diabetes Type I and unfortunately, most sufferers die at an early age but usually not before having body parts amputated, as did FMB.

Mikey12345 had Type I Diabetes and after multiple amputations, died as well.

It's a terrible, terrible disease.

Dialysis just mechanically replaces kidney function after the disease killed the kidneys.

My grandpa was in it for 9 years. He had a kidney removed with cancer and then later the other one quit. Itís pretty hard on the body.

Was a really good poster, seemed like a good dude and so sorry to hear. My uncle died at 44 from complications from diabetes and that is one awful disease.

Hope he got to see and enjoy the Chiefs Super Bowl victory before all this.

RIP Fire Me Boy! :-)

In Your Honor, I hope when you get into heaven they have this waiting for you.......

Your feelings are completely understandable. He was a good person that deserved far better.
