It’s hard to believe it’s been 4 years since the world lost a true talent, inspiration and kind heart — Cory Monteith. On the anniversary of his untimely death, fans are flooding social media with emotional messages.
On July 13, 2013, we were forced to say goodbye to actor, Cory Monteith who sadly died of an overdose at the age of 31. Although some time has passed, the wound is still fresh for his devoted fans. On the fourth anniversary of his death, Glee fans, and lovers of the actor’s many works are taking to social media to remember him. Cory is so loved that he has become a trending topic that’s sweeping the internet with sweet messages, old memories and photos.
Cory was known for his kind heart and his endless charitable efforts. And, on May 11, 2017 — what would have been his 35th birthday — his mother, Ann McGregor teamed up with Saint James Music Academy to create the Cory Monteith Summer Music Camp Challenge for a campaign in his memory. With a goal to raise $20,000 to send 50 kids to summer camp, the campaign ended on June 30. While the outcome of the charitable effort has not been revealed, we’re confident that SJMA and Cory’s mother gave a lot of children a great gift.
The actor’s untimely passing not only weighed heavy on his fans, but his Glee co-stars, including his ex-girlfriend, Lea Michele, 30. While the cast and the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, 51, have yet to speak out about Cory on the fourth anniversary of his death, we’re sure they’re certainly thinking of him on this day. In Sept. 2016, Murphy actually revealed the last words that he and Cory shared before the actor’s tragic death. “We hugged, and the last thing he said was ‘I love you, man, and thank you for helping me get better.’ And then the next thing I knew he was dead,” Murphy recalled to Entertainment Weekly. “It was like losing a child.” So sad.
Lea Michele has been candid in the past about her struggles with dealing with Cory’s passing. “She always misses Cory around this time of year,” a source close to the actress told HollywoodLife.com on July 10, 2017. “She always gets reminded of things he did or liked and it just makes her sad that he isn’t around anymore… She’ll always have a big piece of her heart devoted to him, and always remembers him fondly even though it is also a sad time of the year for her.” Awe.
While we continue to remember the beautiful life Cory lived, take a look at the emotional reactions from fans on the fourth anniversary of his death. Our thoughts are with Cory’s friends and family during this sensitive time.
