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.
