Lea Michele Remembers Cory Monteith on Anniversary of His Death, Shares Never-Before-Seen Photo
Yesterday, July 13, was likely a tough day for Lea Michele (Rachel) as it marked the one-year anniversary of her boyfriend Cory Monteith’s (Finn) tragic death from a mix of heroin and alcohol.
Lea was spotted in Santa Barbara with friends yesterday, but Cory was definitely not far from her mind as she remembered him on both Twitter and Instagram and shared two never-before-seen photos of the actor. You can learn more about how Lea chose to remember Cory by watching the video above.
The loving tweet she sent out nearly brought tears to our eyes, and the accompanying photo shows the Cory we miss so much. He’s a little scruffier than he usually was on the red carpet, and his trademark half-smile melts our hearts as he stands on a beach.
Lea remembered Cory on Instagram as well, though she opted to keep the caption short and sweet (a heart emoji) and let a photo of her and Cory do the talking. In the Instagram pic, Cory and Lea are shown on a beach, smiling. Cory’s got his arm around Lea as they both look happily at the camera.
It’s hard to believe that Cory has been gone for a year already, but we’re glad he lives on in the hearts of those who love him.
