Mile 11: Robert C.
In Memory of Robert Carroll
"Hard to believe that today marks 11 years since my dad took his party to the other side (the cancer-less/booze-full other side). I like to think that much of who I am is shaped by who he was - and that somewhere he's looking down and is really proud of that. He was incredibly generous and kind, but also stubborn with a terrible temper (I didn't take the temper part, but certainly took the stubborn part). Families are far from perfect, but you love them just the same. Dad, I miss you and appreciate you more than I ever let you know but somethings will never change - no, I haven't called my grandmother or mother (but don't worry, they call each other)."
