My Story

Welcome to the CaringBridge website for the Glen Nelson family. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. Get started by reading the introduction to our website, My Story.

We will do our best to update this site as often as we can




On Saturday night March 17th, Glen and Julie were struck by an oncoming vehicle and were airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

Julie suffered significant brain injuries and internal damage.  She passed away early Sunday morning.

The medical staff does not believe that Glen suffered any brain injuries or life-threatening internal injuries.  He did, however, suffer many broken bones throughout his entire body and has gone through a number of surgeries thus far.  

Doctors have placed Glen in a medically-induced coma to restrict his movements.  They expect to keep him in this coma for at least the next several days.

We ask that you keep Glen in your thoughts in prayers, and we also ask that you keep Julie and Glen's two boys, Trevor and Collin in your thoughts and prayers.

The family is arranging Julie's funeral and will update this site when the details are finalized.
