    Words can’t say how sad I feel for all of you and how sorry I am. I wish we could have met him and Sandra both before we left Georgia. Sending prayers your way.

    Sandra and Family- I’ve never met you, but I had the chance to meet Glen back in high school. May God Bless you all and know that Glen is watching over you and protecting you with his arms. If you need anything at all, please contact me, Stay strong for those adorable little ones.

    I wrote this for Glen. For a bit of time we were family and in my heart he will always be my brother.

    you were loved
    beyond the memories
    beyond this moment
    reaching towards eternity
    you were loved
    with every smile so easy
    with every word so kind
    laughing with the world by your side
    you will be missed
    even after the tears
    even after the dark
    even as the light shines bright
    you will be missed
    through the pain
    through the sorrow
    through every comfort offered
    you were so loved
    please hold this true
    as you wake to heaven
    far from our reach
    but close to our hearts

    Journey well in to the next. May your family always feel the light of your love.

    I’m in tears reading this blog. I’m sorry for your loss and keeping the family and friends in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort you always.

  11. May God Rest his Soul. Our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and all that knew him. Glen will always have a special place in our hearts and will be missed by so many. He was a great man. We haven’t shed this many tears in a long time.

    Stay strong and know you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

  12. Jennifer Burkholder says:

    I have thought about this family so often over the past week. My thoughts and prayers continue for them during this most difficult time.

  13. Willette Jones says:

    I had the priviledge of getting to know Glen in high school. The one word that probably describes him best is genuine. He always had this huge smile on his face. He will be missed. Sandra, I am continuing to pray for you and the kids.

  14. My heart is breaking over how this ended. This may not count a lot, but on the other side of the world is a stranger thinking of and praying for the family and friends he left behind.

  15. Marcia Swiss says:

    Our hearts and prayers continue to go out to your wonderful families and friends. May God send his amazing Grace upon you to comfort you. You are greatly loved.

  16. Pamela Carlson and Family says:

    May God bless and keep Sandra and the children. May He comfort those that Glen leaves behind who are heartbroken.
    I know that here we are in sorrow as we say good-bye, but in heaven, there is rejoicing that their brother has come home.
    Glen will always be an angel watching over his family. He and our Lord will help them through the hard times to bring them comfort and strength.
    Our love to you all this day and always.

  17. Tina Martin says:

    Praying for you during this difficult time.

  18. Karyn says:

    I wasn’t blessed to know Sandra, Glen or the children. I know a few of their friends. The friends I do know are people I am honored to call friends, myself. I am sure they are a reflection of how great a person Glen was. God bless Glen and his family and friends. As a person who lost someone through an accident, all of this experience is so real for me. The grief is heavy and I long to be with the Walkers. I also recently lost my mom to cancer. And through all of this I look to God for understanding, peace and love. God is so great and my love for him is never ending just like his love for us is never ending. He has his arms around the Walkers.

    Glen you will be so missed. I pray for your wife and children and the all the other victims too.

    God Bless you all.

    I found this poem (by David M. Romano) yesterday that I’d though I would share…May you rest in peace, my dear friend, Glen….

    When tomorrow starts without me,
    and I’m not there to see;
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    all filled with tears for me;
    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
    the way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things
    we didn’t get to say.
    I know how much you love me,
    as much as I love you,
    And each time you think of me,
    I know you’ll miss me, too.
    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    please try and understand,
    That an angel came and called my name
    and took me by the hand,
    And said my place was ready
    in heaven far above,
    And that I’d have to leave behind
    all those I dearly love.
    But as I turned to walk away,
    a tear fell from my eye,
    For all my life I’d always thought
    I didn’t want to die.
    I had so much to live for
    and so much yet to do,
    It seemed almost impossible
    that I am leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    the good ones and the bad,
    I thougth of all the love we shared
    and all the fun we had.
    If I could relive yesterday,
    I thought, just for a while,
    I’d say good-bye and kiss you
    and maybe see your smile.
    But then I fully realized
    that this could never be.
    For emptiness and memories
    would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things
    that I’d miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    my heart was filled with sorrow.
    But when I walked through heaven’s gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God look down and smiled at me,
    from His great golden throne.
    He said, “This is eternity
    and all I’ve promised you,
    Today your life on earth is past,
    but here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    but today will always last,
    And since each day’s the same day,
    there’s no longing for the past.
    But you have been so faithful,
    so trusting and so true,
    Though there were times you did some things
    you knew you shouldn’t do.
    But you have been forgiven,
    and now at last your free.
    So won’t you take my hand
    and share my life with me?”
    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    don’t think we’re far apart,
    For everytime you think of me,
    I’m right here in your heart.

    My prayers go to the family and friends of Glen. Someone on Facebook said it best that whether you knew Glen for 20 minutes or 20 years, that he touched so many people. I felt compelled to share with my own family and friends this blog from which so much love was poured to this loving couple. May God bless the Walker family and friends.

  21. Daniel Lebow says:

    Glenroy. We were in the Young Astronauts club together at Pinckneyville Middle School. He’s the only person I remember from that club. I’ve thought about Glenroy from time to time during these intervening 23 years. He was one human who, for whatever reason, I’ve never forgotten and will never forget. He was so skinny back then, and I was sure he’d become an astronaut. I’ll miss you, Glenroy.

  22. Evelyn, Sonia, Mariette, Agnes, Kyla, Akeale & Kymesha says:

    Gone is the face we loved so dear
    Silent is the face we loved to hear.
    Too far away for sight or speech,
    But not too far for thought to reach,
    Sweet to remember him once here,
    Who, though absent, is just as dear.

    A heart so wonderfully kind,
    So soft a voice, so sweet a smile,
    Thoughts are full and hearts do weigh,
    Without him here to share the way,
    Time may dull the hand of fate,
    Memory forever recalls the date.

  23. Keshea W. says:

    I feel as though I have been touched by a stranger. I did not know Glen or his wife, I only heard of this story on the news and then a co-worker approached me with the story because she attended highschool with Glen. I have prayed for him and his family each day and encouraged friends and family members to do the same. Life can truely change in an instant although we may never fully comfort Sandra at least we can be there whenever she needs someone. I am sure when she can read each and every word that has been placed on this blog it will remind her of why God chose this man for her. Although he was not with her as long as she would have liked she will meet him again and experience his presence for to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. May God continue to comfort you and bless each and every friend, family member and everyone that hears of Glen and Sandra’s love story.

    I have had a lot of mixed feelings about this story and the Christian part of me has just quit asking why and what in the world was going on in the other car, I do send my condolences from my family to you all. I had a poem that I wrote for my grandmother when she passed of colon cancer that she kept from all of us and I felt that I could share it with Sandra because the love they shared was that of best friends and ones that love and care for each other literally til death due us part. Sandra keep your head up as best you can and take your time to heal on all ends of the stick.

    I MISS YOU!!

    I’ll miss you today
    I’ll miss you tomorrow
    You’ve helped me through the joy
    You’ve helped me through the sorrow
    Now that you’re gone you’ve left me all alone
    With no special someone to talk to on the phone
    I won’t forget you, you were my best friend
    You’re ALWAYS in my heart until the very end.

    I LOVE YOU & I MISS YOU!!!!!!
