Today is a very sad day

on November 21, 2011

Dear family and friends,

We were called to the hospital to receive the news on Glen’s CT scan, and I’m sorry to say that our dear Glen will not make it.

The initial damage to Glen’s brain was catastrophic. His brain has not gotten enough oxygen to maintain normal brain functions. It has been dying from the moment of impact and is now all but completely dead.

The part I dreaded the most was having to tell Sandra. It was just as hard as you might think. She did not fall completely apart as I feared, but after crying for a long time, realized she needed to be strong for the kids.

Sandra was able to go see him to say goodbye. She wanted the children to be brought to the hospital so that they also could see him and say goodbye. In the end, the children decided to stay at the door and not go any closer. But at least they had a choice in the decision. Sandra stayed several hours with Glen. She came out much more composed than I was.

I can’t, and won’t, try to tell you how Glen’s family feels. That is their story and they will tell it when they are ready. For our family, we are losing a man we cared very much about and who was easily the best thing that ever happened to Sandra other than her children. We grieve for her and the Walker family as I know you will.

    My heart hurts so much for Sandra, for both families, for the kids…I have never felt so lost and so sad for “strangers” as I did today. I am so, so deeply sorry that this news was received. Thank you for allowing me to be there, to have some time with Sandra before she received the news. You all have been on my mind constantly, and I was so hoping for a better outcome. I love you all and if you need ANYTHING, please do not hesitate to ask.

      I am Glennie’s youngest aunt who lives in Canada and right now the only thing I can say is Thank you all for your support keep us all in your prayers

  2. Jet Harris says:

    I am so sorry for all of you. I am Margot’s friend of many years but have lived in Oregon for the last 5. I never had the opportunity to meet Glen but I know he was all that he has been described as and more. My heart goes out to you and we’ll be thinking of you here in Oregon as the Meeker-Walker clan weathers this next phase.

    We will continue to pray for the Walkers and those near to this family for a peace that exceeds all understanding. We love you.

  4. Jill Contarino says:

    My heart is heavy and breaking right now for Glen and his family. I played flag football with both Glen and Michael for many years and I can’t describe in words how devasting this is to hear. My thoughts and prayers are with Sandra the kids, Michael and the entire Walker family. May God bless all of you.

  5. Lisa Sharp says:

    So sorry to here this news. I do not know Sandra or Glen but have been praying for them. I will continue to pray for the family.

  6. Mandy says:

    It amazes me how the story of complete strangers can move me so much. I am so deeply sorry for the loss of Glen. All of the stories that I have read show how good of a person he was. Please accept my condolences on this horrible loss. I pray that strength gets Sandra, Alana, Cameron, and the rest of the family through this tragic time. Spend the holidays remembering Glen and how he changed everyone’s lives, even those who have never met him.

  7. Ann Mione Purser says:

    Mr. Meeker… I cannot imagine what you had to endure to pass that news on to Sandra. You are brave. I wish I could hug you. It has been a day full of sadness, sorrow, anger, questions, doubts and helplessness. I would give anything to find a way to heal the broken hearts stretching all over this country. I move my prayers over to begging God for some normality to return to all the lives affected by this tragedy. God bless you all who deal with this every moment of every day. Sandra, Michael, Michelle and the rest of the Walkers…. I pray for peace for you. I really do. I say thanks for having met Glen before he was taken away. Wonderful man. Please give Alana and Cameron an extra hug… It doesn’t matter if they know where it came from.

  8. Lisa says:

    I have said for as many years as I have known Glen, that he is The World’s Most Beautiful Man. Not only stunning on the outside, but gorgeous on the inside as well. The way he smiled when he saw you, and the way he was always trying to get groups together to create and share memories. The loss hurts and will hurt hard and differently for each of us. We are all thankful that Sandra is healthy and still here to care for their children and know that Glen will do everything he can from above to guide them all. We will all be there for the Walker family now and for as long as they need us. Peace be with you, Glen. We love you!

  9. Stacey Wrisley says:

    I wanted things to turn about better than they did. This just breaks my heart to learn about this. I didn’t want Sandy to go through like I have for almost two years. We all need to be there for one another. My heart goes out to her.

  10. Brenda says:

    Glen was one of the most caring, happy, thoughtful, and genuine people I have ever met, let alone been lucky enough to call a friend. I am greatly saddened for everyone suffering through this loss especially his family. I will continue to keep Sandra, the children, and the entire Walker family in my thoughts and in my heart. Rest in Peace Glen. We all love you and will miss you dearly.

  11. Jenna Graber says:

    I am so sorry. My heart is breaking for Sandra, Alana, Cameron and the entire family. I cannot even begin to imagine what you are going through. Michael, I want to send you a virtual hug. You are an amazing brother and uncle. And as a younger sibling who’s best friend is her big sister, I hold a special place in my heart for you tonight.

    May God’s grace comfort the family during this difficult time. I will continue to lift all of you in prayer.

  13. Julie Holliday says:

    There are never the right words to express the grief and sorrow that we feel when we lose someone who has had such a positive impact on our lives. “I’m sorry” just isn’t enough. I feel blessed to have known Glen, and will surely miss his smile as he lovingly dropped Cameron off at preschool each morning.
    May the memories of the great man that he was help carry his family through this very difficult time.

  14. Michelle Mosher says:

    I had the pleasure of working with Glen for a few years at Infinity and through our work relationship became good friends. I’m so sorry to read of this news this morning. My heart breaks for the Walker & Meeker families as they struggle through this next life obstacle. Glen was a wonderful man who loved God, his family & friends. I’m blessed to have known him and will cherish the times we spent together and the memories made forever. Bless each of you as you struggle through this very difficult time.

  18. Lynn Setsma says:

    I am so sorry for everyone. I just got into work and this is the first e-mail I’m reading and I weep as I type. I so prayed that he would pull through. Know that my thoughts and prayers will continue to be with each of you — for comfort and continued healing for Sandy.

  19. I’m grateful that I had the chance to know Glen. I certainly will not forget his humor, sarcasm, kindness, and love for life. We will be praying for all of the family as you mourn the loss of a great man.

  20. Our heart breaks for you all. Glen seemed like a simply incredible man, so full of love for Sandy, the kids and the Lord. Please know that we are with you all in spirit and love you all. Mary

  21. Tonia says:

    Wow, amazing How PK’s teaching comes home to us, like he knows and understands…..or in his words God directs him. His teaching was spot on, we don’t know WHY God heals some and not others, HE must have a higher purpose for Glen. I am certain that Glen is looking down and watching over Sandra and their 2 beautiful babies. My prayers go out to the family, for continued healing and peace. There are no words to help with the pain, just an outpouring of love.
    Love you Sandra.

  23. Will Broadway says:

    I don’t want to believe this 😦 My heart and prayers are with your family during this holiday season. I pray that the Lord watches over you and the children and also blesses you with the strength and understanding to grow from this tragedy. Glen will be missed…but never forgotten.

  24. Beth Granger says:

    God be with all of you at this sad time. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

  25. buffaloheather says:

    My heart is so very heavy. I am with Tonia up there…I keep pressing ‘replay’ from the Sermon this past Sunday….because my flesh is questioning why..anger wants to set in…but I have to trust that God has a bigger plan and though we can’t see the why’s ~ I will praise Him. Sandra and those precious babies, all the family are in my thoughts, my prayers…I will continue to pray healing, peace and total restoration!! My sister sent me this today ~ from Psalm 116:15 “ Precious in the sight of the Lord, is the death of His saints”. He is serving a Great God right now, and that gives us all hope.
    Much love,

  32. Todd Martinez says:

    You can see by all of the words on this blog and many more shared outside it, what a wonderful man Glen was to everyone who knew him. Glen’s magical smile was only outdone by his enormous heart. Everybody who has had the honor to know Glen is better off, and our hearts are very heavy today. To the families of both Glen and Sandra, we are so sorry for your loss and our prayers and offering of support will continue. Both my home and work families mourn this loss and we will treasure our time with Glen forever. I will always believe that thanks to Glen’s last act in life, his lovely wife and beautiful children are safe and will continue the legacy of this beautiful man. May God bless Glen and everyone who loved him, and my his love live on through those very same people he touched.

  33. Jennifer Burkholder says:

    The Burkholder family is so very sorry for the loss of Glen. While we personally do not know the family (our son is in the 3.5 year old class at KidsRKids Duluth), our thoughts and prayers have been with the family. The news has really hit us hard during these trying times and have further made us realize how precious life is.

He had such a beautiful smile and a big heart, I will miss him! I am so devastated to hear the news and am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to your family and if there’s anything I can do let me know.

  36. Jill says:

    “When you live a life worthy of God’s calling, your life outlives you”. The radiance from Glen’s smile has made such an impression on us all. It will continue on as well as his legacy.

  37. Jessica Deresch says:

  39. Charissa Pal says:

    I’m so very sorry to hear of Glen’s passing. I know Glen through my friends Anna-Lisa Evans and Valerie Fender. We all had the opportunity to spend a “Michael Jackson” themed birthday with him this year in Miami. It was the first time that I met Sandra and the children as well. What an amazing couple and family. My heartfelt prayers go out to the family during this very difficult time.

  40. Donna Hall says:

    This is truly a sad day. I knew Glen from working with him at Infinity and playing pickup games of tennis when weather permitted. I never met Sandra but knew how much Glen loved her and his children.

    Glen is one of those peoiple you come to know in your lifetime that is a true gentleman and a wonderful perdon. His smile was addicitng and his heart was huge. He will be greatly missed. My heart goes out ot the friends and family he left behind.

  41. Donovan Vansant says:

    Despite the tears, sadness and pain everyone of us is better off for having Glen in our lives. Whether you’re a life long friend or a casual acquaintance Glen touched us all. For me thats his legacy, through his death he has taught us all how to live. Rest in peace friend.

    God needed another hero in heaven and today he has one of mine. I am blessed to have had the privelege of your friendship. Your smile will forever live in my heart.

    God Bless Glen Walker and his beautiful family.

  43. Karen Schousen says:

    Doug, I am completely devestated with the news about Glen, I too, feel blessed that I was able to meet him and see for myself, how great he has been for Sandy.

    From the bottom of my heart, I want to express to you what an incredible job you have been doing with these blogs. When I opened the latest one up and read its title, I didn’t want to read further. As I read it and reread and reread it and reread it hoping this news wasn’t true, I began to take in the magnitude of you sitting at the keyboard having to put into words what was happening. I so needed to know about Sandy and the children after learning the news about Glen. My heart aches for all of you who love and cherish Glen, Sandra , Alana and Cameron.

    Love, Karen and Steve

  44. monica says:

    I do not know Glen or Sandra personally. But I have been following their story and pray day and night . I am so sorry for your loss and cant begin to imagine how difficult this must be for everyone especially Sandra and the kids. May god give you peace and strength to get through this.

    God Bless

  45. Pamela Carlson and Family says:

    I pray for strength for you and Sandra and the children. May the Lord comfort you all and help you as you go forward without Glen.

    God bless you all.

  46. I am very sad to hear about Glen. Glen was a down to earth person, a gentleman and fun to be around. I am grateful for the opportunity to have known him. My prayers for strength for Sandra, his kids and the rest of the family.

  47. Ramirez D Evans says:

    This really is a tough pill to swallow. I’ve played with and against Glen in football, as we were family on and off the field. Just finding out what happened… i’m literally crushed! Thinking and praying for the entire Walker family and friends!

  48. Diane Shelton says:

    So sad to hear the devastating news. We have been friends with the Walkers for over 20 years and love them so much. God be with the entire family during this difficult time. Our prayers are with all of you.

  49. Christine Tong & Family says:

    We are all so very sorry to hear the news about Glen. He will be missed very much. I was lucky enough to call him ‘family’ even if it was for such a short time. Our prayers go out to Glen’s family and friends for their loss.

  50. Al & Sherry Simon says:

    Our prayers are being lifted for the Walker family. We are praying for our God who loves you so much to give you His perfect peace in your loss.

  51. Cara Kliefoth says:

    This world would be a better place if more people strived to be the type of person I knew Glen to be. His amazing smile and kind heart will never be forgotten. My prayers go out to the entire Walker/Meeker family, as well as everyone whose life was made just a little bit brighter by knowing Glen. We’ll miss you, Glen! God Bless.

  52. Penny Meschewski says:

    I am so sorry to hear the news about Glen. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  53. Ramona Binder says:

    My heart is deeply saddened with the loss of a great friend. I’ve known Glen for several years – working together at Infinity, playing Fantasy Football together over the years, and recently rejoining our coworker relationship at Everest Security. Glen was one of the warmest, most genuine people that I have ever known. He thrived on making people laugh and could always come up with a funny story to tell. Even through the tears, I am so thankful that I had the privilege to share paths with such a wonderful human being and I will cherish the memories that I have of him.

    I offer my deepest condolences to all those that loved him.

    Rest in peace, Glen.

  54. Brooke Riback says:

    My time living in Atlanta was short, and I didn’t get to know Glen as well as I would have liked. I will remember him for his infectious smile, warmth, and his obvious, unrelenting love for family and friends. This is no doubt an incredibly sad day for all the many people you touched, Glen. May you rest in peace.

    Sending love, thoughts, and prayers to the entire Walker/Meeker families.

  55. Pamela Coan says:

    I met Glen playing flag football many, many years ago and though I haven’t seen him in a few years, we have kept in touch via Facebook and other mutual friends. My heart is so deeply saddened as I can truly say that the world lost a great man! Glen was kind and compassionate, a great friend to a lot of people. I know that we will all miss him very much!

  56. Lauren, Derek and Taylor Godfrey says:

    We are deeply sadden by this news and our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you move through this storm.

  57. Kelli and Collin Eich says:

    Glen,
    You were and forever will be one of the greatest men I’ve ever known. It was your warm heart and devotion to your family that I admired most. I will treasure the times we shared and look forward to the day we meet again! May you rest in peace dear friend and enjoy His Kingom.

    Kelli and Collin

    Our thoughts and prayers belong to your beautiful wife and children, and all of the Walker/Meeker family. May God bring you strength and comfort.

  58. Lori says:

    I have not seen Glen since high school and I can’t say we were friends, but I have been following his story on this blog since I heard of the accident. It is obvious from reading all the FB messages etc that Glen has touched an amazing amount of people. Not a day has gone by since I read the first post that I haven’t thought of Glen and his wife and family. It has been inspiring and heartbreaking to follow. I want to thank all of you for finding the strength to keep the messages flowing. As a wife and mother of four, this story has truly opened my eyes and heart. I believe I heard about this for a reason. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, and I can only say thank you for sharing.

  59. Jevon Willis says:

    I am so mad I can spit fire! Why? It is so painful to know that Glen’s life was cut short because the the carelessness and disregard for others that resulted in the fatal car accident. Because of that selfish decision to be careless, Glen is not here. My family and I will not be spending this Thanksgiving with Sandy and Glen. Glen will not be able to introduce me to his family. Glen will not be able to talk about Georgia Bulldogs. Glen will not be able to see Alana and Cameron live their lives. I want “justice” for Glen. I know it won’t bring him back.

    Glen is donating his organs. He will continue to live through the lives of people he will never meet. His legacy of generosity, diligence and care for those who he loved and lived life with lives past his earthly existence. It was an honor and a privilege knowing you Glen. You are already missed.

  60. Kriss Barronton says:

    My heart goes out to the Meeker and Walker families. I feel fortunate to have known Glen. His smile and kind spirit made it easy to be his friend. Please know that you are in my family’s thoughts and prayer’s during this difficult time.

  61. Margaret Ackerman says:

    To the Meeker and Walker families,

    All of you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I most admire the love and dedication that Glen has shown to his family. Although I have only known Glen and Sandra a short time, it is apparent how much they love each other and the children. I pray that this love will hold your families strong at this time.

  63. Crystal says:

    My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in this family. I didn’t know Glen for very long but it is proof reading all the posts that he was a blessing to so many. I know he is in a better place.

  64. Andrew and Darcy says:

    I’m so sorry! We are friends of Chuck and Michelle and started praying for your family as soon as they posted about it on facebook. Although we are strangers we are so sad to hear this news. It is hard to understand. I pray for peace and loving arms for you all during this time. May you be comforted! I can’t begin to understand your pain.

  65. Kerry Smith says:

    I was at Atlanta Airport today picking up friends and I watched as the troops arrived home for the holidays. All I could think of was how Glen would not be coming home but is instead home with our saviour. My heart and prayers go out to Sandra, the children and both families. Sandra is a wonderful coworker and recently she said something that helped me through a tough time in my life. I pray that all the blessings from friends and family will help her through. Much love, Kerry Smith

  66. Tonya Beaty says:

    I am so sorry to hear of such a great loss. Glen was such a treasure. He was a pleasure to work with and his smile always radiated. I pray for his wife, children, family and friends in this time of loss. With love and compassion, Tonya Beaty

  67. Elice Davey says:

    I have known Sandra for about 6 years. We used to work together in GR. I helped watch Alana when she was just a baby. I met Glen for the first time about 3 years ago. Although I did not know Glen very well, I was so happy that Sandra was happy and in love! Alana loved him so much too! I am so sorry that this happened. My heart goes out to Sandra, Alana, Cameron, and the Walker family.

  68. stefoni says:

    This is such sad news. I am a teacher at kids r kids. I’ve know the family since I hade Alana in the 2 1/2 yr old room. My heart n prayers go to Sandra,kids, n the whole family. He was such a great man.
    Stefoni Edwards

  69. Dave Sixto says:

    Alana & Cameron,

    Your daddy was an incredible man, and an amazing friend. His smile lit up any room and his personality did nothing but draw people in. I don’t ever remember a time when he wasn’t happy and you two were the biggest joys of his life. If you remember nothing else, your daddy loved you both soooo much and your mommy was the love of his life.

    Sandra,

    My heart hurts for you and your entire family. I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now. Rhonda and I, have been and continue to pray for you all walk through this tremendous loss. Please know that like so many others we are here for you.

    The world lost a great one.

  70. Dave Kagan says:

    Dear Meeker and Walker families,
    It is only today that we finally connected to the blog — Jeff heard from Stacie this morning — and we want you to know how much we hold you in our hearts. We’ve been thinking about you and will continue to do so as those who Glen leaves behind begin taking baby steps to some semblance of recovery.

    Love,

  71. Michelle Wright says:

    I dont know your family at all but saw this story on the news. I was worried about commenting because Im a non beliver, but once I left the site something told me to come back and leave a comment. This story is not only a story of a tragic but a story of love. Sandra you have so many people who not only love your Glen but love you and your kids. There are stories upon story posted here about him that clearly shows he was an outstanding guy. I hope that gives you confort in your time of lost. I hope for your speedy recovery as thoes babies do need you (my dad also passed when I was young). I am deeply saddend and sorry for your lost.

    • Tonia says:

      Michelle,
      You are right, many if not all of us on here are believers. We have all come to Christ in our own time, for our own reasons, or maybe not. God presses on us, and eventually we listen. None of this will be painless, but God never said that our lives would be without pain and tragedy, just that he would walk with us during those times.
      If you ever need a place to go to learn about Our Saviour come to 12Stone, with or without the knowledge of Christ we will accept you and teach you if you want to learn. Sandra & Glen were members.

  72. Eric and Sherry DeJong says:

    We are so deeply sorry for your great loss. We pray that the peace beyond all understanding continues to pour on your family. Your family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

  73. Rosemary says:

    I just read about this today online. I don’t know what to say except I am so so sorry for your loss. You look like such lovely people and you don’t deserve this. God bless you all

  74. Maria Thacker says:

    Saying many prayers for the family. My condolences. I am so sorry for you.

  75. Dayna says:

    My heart and prayers go out to the family. I remember Alana from Kids R Kids when I worked there. Very nice couple and it just breaks my heart for Sandra and the kids and of course the rest of this wonderful family. May God be with you all.

  76. Laura says:

    “The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.” By Eileen Elias Freeman

    You and your family will continue to be in my prayers.

  77. Noreen Shirazi-Payne says:

    I have memories of Glenroy and my baby brother, 2 skinny boys age 12 playing basketball and soccer, great friends from so long ago. Both Homecoming court in high school so handsome and ready to take on the world. Amazing to see how Glen has grown to be an amazing young man, raising a beautiful family touching so many in such a short time. He’ll live on through his children, his family and countless friends. Memories so many of us will cherish.

  78. Josh Beall says:

    I knew Glen from UGA, where we were in the same class. After graduation, I moved away from Georgia and came back to visit twice a year, usually in the summer and again around Christmas. Because Glen and I had many mutual friends, we often interacted at New Year’s Eve parties and similar events. I remember Glen as intelligent, funny, good-natured, and always smiling. Although I liked Glen a great deal, I regret that I didn’t get to know him better.

    My heart goes out to Glen’s family, especially his widow and two young children. Your husband and father was a great man, and he touched the lives of many people, even some who didn’t get to know him as well as they would have liked. He’ll be missed.

  79. Mary Reavis says:

    I was blessed to get to know Glen and Sandra when I cared for their son, Cameron. It was evident in the way he cared for his children to see how much Glen loved his family and I will always remember his million-watt smile and kind words.

    My heart is breaking for Sandra, Cameron, Alana, the Walker and Meeker families and all of us who were privileged to have crossed paths with Glen. The world has lost “one of the good guys”.

  80. Grant Goodburn says:

    I did not know Glen, but we shared a number of friends. I heard about the accident after it happened, but have not seen this website until now. I am so sorry to hear the bad news today. It is obvious that Glen was a good man. Nobody deserves this to happen to their family. I will keep Sandra, Cameron, Alana, and the rest of the extended family in my thoughts. Lean on your family and friends–it seems they are in abundance for the Walkers. My wife is in therapy here in Atlanta for a brain injury she suffered earlier this summer, and I am all too familiar with the emotional swings that come with such a slow and unsure recovery process. If I can be of any help at all, please don’t hesitate to ask.

    One day Mr.Meeker came in and told us that his niece’s family had got into a car accident.Then today I saw on the news what happen.

    All my prayers go to the Meeker/Walker family.

  82. I was going through WP’s top posts and I came across this. I’m so sorry for your loss. 😦 I’m a total stranger to you and I have no idea what kind of pain Glen’s family and friends are all going through right now. All I can offer is my compassion. I shall go through your blog and read more about Glen.

    “God hath not promised skies always blue,
    Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
    God hath not promised sun without rain,
    Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

    But God hath promised strength for the day,
    Rest for the laborer, light for the way,
    Grace for the trials, help from above,
    Unfailing sympathy, undying love.”

    -Annie Johnson Flint

    So very sorry for your loss.

    I am so very sorry to hear about Glen. He was a great dad, an obviously loving and devoted husband, and one of the nicest men you could ever meet. It was truly my pleasure to get to know this special family during Alana and Cameron’s time at Kids ‘R’ Kids, and I will keep you all in my prayers during this difficult time.
