Lea Michele and ‘Glee’ cast pay touching tribute to Cory Monteith
Michele and her Glee co-stars have an annual tradition of honouring the late Monteith, who was a fan favourite and beloved by the musical show’s crew, on the day of his death. The Calgary-born star died of a drug overdose in 2013 in Vancouver, B.C. at the age of 31.
Michele, 29, posted a touching message to her Twitter account:
Other Glee cast members shared their memories and thoughts of Monteith to social media, including Matthew Morrison, Kevin McHale, Naya Rivera, and Jenna Ushkowitz.
The hashtag #3YearsWithoutCory is being used on Twitter to honour Monteith.

Three years ago my best friend wasabout to get married, I was 7 months pregnant and was delivered the news that Cory had passed I was weary to get too emotional in fear that I would go into labor too early. Not only was cory the most genuine, always the guy to stop and say hi to fans, but he made everyone around him laugh….obv this photo is proof. He was our family. We miss u bud. #3yearswithoutcory
After meeting on the Glee set in 2009, Michele and Monteith started dating in 2012, a mere year before his death. The two were inseparable, travelling around the world together and even planning their future and a family.Follow @CJancelewicz
