Glen’s 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.

Latest Journal Update

One year ago.

As we remember this day one year ago, we are saddened by the memories that took place. Although it seems like a long time ago it  seems like only yesterday.  The family was together this weekend at Don and Delores's in Amery.  We also went to the accident site today where Glen, Trevor, Collin, Don and Delores all put flowers on the cross that was made by Sue and Russ.

 Julie was called away from us much too soon and we  still try to get our arms around the fact that she is really gone. The days will move on, the years will move on and in time we will heal but never forget.  There were other plans for Julie.  We will never forget her and we will carry her memory in our hearts forever. She touched so many in ways that nobody can.

 Glen and the boys are doing well. School and sports certainly keep the Nelson family busy.   In talking with Glen the past couple of days, he continues to acknowledge the wonderful support that he has had from friends and family.  He is truly overwhelmed and knows that he could not have gotten through this without every ones help and prayers. 

From the entire Nelson and Boumeester Families, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
