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

Lea wasn’t the only member of the “Glee” family who kept Cory close on Saturday.

“6 years without those bear hugs 💜,” she wrote.
Kevin McHale (Artie Abrams) posted a photo of Cory mid-smile, writing, “The sweetest boy. Forever. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️.”
