why is franz kemmerich dying? and how are muller's feelings about kemmerich's dying different from Paul's feelings?

Kemmerich had his leg amputated after being wounded in battle. He will die from his injuries. Paul worries about having to give the news of his close friend's death to his mother (Kemmerich's mother). Muller simply wants Kemmerich's boots because he'll no longer have need of them. Good boots are a rare commodity for Germans in this war.
