While the news of Cory Monteith’s passing continues to shock, Gleeks are banding together and speaking out in honor of the star’s memory.
The actor’s Glee co-star Dianna Agron is the latest to release a statement in remembrance of Cory’s long-lasting influence.
“I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile… Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry.”
“We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there… Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone’s hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me, but my family.”
And finally, Dianna addressed Cory’s family and his love Lea Michele with warm, heartfelt words:
“My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend… We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us.”
Beautifully written, Dianna.
