Lea Michele Honors Late Love Cory Monteith 6 Years After His Death: ‘The Light Always Remains’

Six years after the death of her then-boyfriend, Lea Michele still feels his light everywhere she goes.

On July 13, the sixth anniversary of Cory Monteith‘s fatal overdose at age 31, the “Glee” heroine took to Twitter to reflect on his undying memory.

“The light always remains,” Lea wrote alongside a photo of the sun peeking through the clouds.

The heartfelt quote is a truncated version of the one she shared the year prior.

“There are some who bring a light so great to the world, that even after they’re gone, the light remains,” her 2018 tweet read.

Lea has made a tradition of honoring Cory on every July 13, sharing throwback photos, sunset pics and sweet messages on her social media pages each year.
