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.

She began:

“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.”

Dianna continued:

“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.

    Lasqueesha - Ummm… Not many of the cast have released statements. Lea released one but I'm sure that it's because her publicist said something needed to be said and the publicist wrote it all for her. Naya and Dianna have both written statements and released them to the press. Naya seems to have written hers on behalf of everyone.

    Dianna obviously chose to write one in Cory's memory and honour.

    Both Naya and Dianna likely had to write their statements themselves. It's understandable they took their time - their friend died and sometimes you're just not ready to announce to the world that you're sorry your friend died. You need time to grieve and mourn.

    Maybe have a little compassion and understanding?

    Re: Lasqueesha – Of course she 'took her time'! She lost someone close to her. Nobody really released any kind of statement, except Dianna just recently and Naya a day or so ago. Lea released one straight away, obviously because she had to and her publicist is really the one who wrote it.

    Maybe you don't understand the concept of grief?

    Re: the ghost of cory
    Choke on a dick, you inconsiderate piece of shit.
    Cory was so many things to so many people and not one of them was a bad thing. He was an inspiration and a role model to anyone he came in contact with. Heaven forbid he had issues in his life, everyone does. Not everyone can face those demons. Leave Cory out of it. I'm not going to wish anything bad upon you, because that's not what Cory would have wanted. All I can say, I hope you have a better job dealing with your skeletons in your closet.
