    It’s sad that Cory is dead and won’t be on Glee anymore at first I didn’t like the show but after one episode I loved it especially his character and the fact that he had a good heart all the time and willing to do anything for those he loved. He is and always will be an inspiration for others trying to follow their dreams, my heart and prayers go out to his friends, family, loved ones, and Lea who stood by him when things went bad. R. I. P. Cory Monteith.

    Cory Monteith was truly a good man. Yeah, i’m just a Gleek, i didnt meet him or anything, but i felt like i knew him, and through his work in Glee i feel like he has talked to me. The news was truly devastating, and my thoughts and prayers go out to Lea Michele, my role model, and all of Cory’s friends and family. RIP Cory Monteith, you are truly missed.
