“I first met Glen when I was 15 in the mid-70s at the CMA Awards, then again a few years later in Las Vegas at the Desert Inn. We had a great run. We did a lot of traveling — he took me to Europe. We kissed under the Eiffel Tower. Glen always said if you kiss under the Eiffel Tower, you get to come back 20 years later with the same person. We had some of the best times, and those are the memories I hang on to now,” Tanya wrote of the “Rhinestone Cowboy” singer.

Tanya confided that she sometimes thinks of what could have been, “and I have regrets, but it is what it is. I tell my kids now, if you love somebody, don’t pick up and leave them. I said I’d always love Glen, and forever ain’t over. I’ll never get over him.”
