In Loving Memory of our tall, awkward, canadian, actor, drummer, person and now also angel and hero. 1982-2013 ♡
Gosh, it’s already a year. One year. It seems like yesterday when I was listening to ‘I’ll stand by you’ thinking “One day, I will meet him. I’m sure”. And the next day, a friend of mine called me saying “Cory is dead”. Actually, I didn’t believe her: “She kidding” I thought “it’s just one of that fake news on internet. Cory is not dead. He just came out of rehab. He won against drugs”. But a quick research on internet confirmed all that doubts. He was dead. I started crying. I clearly remember how my brother looked at me asking “What happened?!”, how all the newspapers were talking about ‘that boy of glee who died in a hotel’s room beacuse of drugs’. I was so angry because of this: I’m sad when I think that a lot of people know him just like ‘the dead and the doped one of glee’. NO. He was the nicest and the brightesr person I’ve ever known. Yes, he made mistakes, so many mistakes during his life and I’m so mad at him when I think about all that he had and all that he lost: he had his mum and his brother, he had his Famigleea, he had his fans… he had Lea. Everybody loved him and he was so lucky… but when you have had problems in childhood, it’s hard to do not follow wrong streets. He was an angel also when he was here, on Earth. And maybe you think that Cory died because of drugs, but for me he died FIGHTING them. And I’m proud of my brave angel. But he didn’t die. He took the midnight train going anywhere…
Cory Allan Michael Monteith, May 11,1982-July 13, 2013
“And he was just always open and nice and just..just such a kind-hearted person. You know when you meet someone that’s just so nice and lovable that you’re just like I—you just want to be around them; you just need to be around them. And he was one of those people.” Alex Newell
"The only thing I can say about Cory is he would have noticed you. There’s not an autograph he didn’t sign and there’s not a face that he didn’t look at and there’s nobody that didn’t get a smile, and that was really important to him. He lived in gratitude."
