If you can believe it, it's been five years since Cory Monteith tragically passed away from a drug overdose at the young age of 31. Every year on the anniversary of her on-and-off screen love's passing, Lea shares a moving tribute and this year is no exception.
Glee star Lea Michele has shared an inspirational tribute to her late ex-boyfriend on the five-year anniversary of his tragic death.
“There are some who bring a light so great to the world, that even after they have gone, the light remains,” the 31-year-old wrote.
The quote is accompanied by a photo of the sun rising over the ocean.
Last year, in honour of Monteith's memory, Michele wrote, "4 years and it still feels like yesterday.. love you more C," she wrote on Instagram along with a photo that shows her holding a black-and-white shot of her and Cory looking very much in love. Michele is also wearing Monteith's Glee letterman jacket, making it even more touching.
No matter how long he's gone, his fans and Michele will never forget him.
Rest in peace, Cory.
