cory monteith charice touching memory after death

With Cory Monteith's sudden passing, it's nice to hear so many amazing things about him.

And the kind words just keep coming as his former Glee castmate, Charice, has penned an emotional and touching letter about one of the kindest men she's ever met.

Even though she only worked with Cory for a brief amount of time, she truly felt like he was a friend. And from what she's said about him, he was one of the best friends a person could ask for.

In her story, Charice revealed:

"I remember the last time I shot for Glee, it was May 9, 2011. It was a long shooting day that swelled into the wee hours of the following morning. I was a tad emotional when the clock struck 12 midnight — not because I was tired — but because May 10 was my birthday. And I, a girl from the barrio of Gulod in the far-flung Philippines, was alone in America … But Cory came to the rescue, just in time, with his sweet greeting: 'Happy birthday, Charice!' A big smile crossed his handsome face. There was sincerity in his tone as he gave me a tight hug. He became family to me at that moment. In the remaining hours of our shoot, Cory told me he had Googled me and found my date of my birth. Cool Cory's act of kindness. He told other members of the Glee cast that it was my birthday and I was floored at how many of them greeted me with their warm birthday wishes."

We love that everyone is sharing all their sweet stories about Cory's big heart.

With a tribute episode of Glee set to occur early next season, we're sure many more moving stories will come out.

    I am so deeply saddened for the family of Cory and for Lea Michelle. I hope them all the best in handling this tragedy. HOWEVER, Charice definitely does not look like that anymore. So we should probably update our "Charice photos" to 2013 photos instead of 2012 photos. Charice has come out as unbelievable strength for the LGBTQ community, so to represent her as she was, not as she is, seems insensitive. One would never put a Chaz Bono quote attached to a photo of Chastity, right? Lets update the Charice photo's, okay? Thanks. : )

    I literally gasped at this story. It's about the sweetest thing I've read about him. To actually google her to find out her birthday, and then, at the stroke of midnight, swoop in to greet her with a hug and birthday wishes? So precious! Bless his sweet soul. Rest in peace Cory.
