For most Gleeks, this was the moment when Cory Monteith captured our attention, and for some, their eternal love, admiration and fandom:
And then Gleeks woke up to the news that Cory Monteith was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada. After he missed his supposed check out time, the hotel staff came to check on him, only to find his body. There was no evidence of foul play. Glee fans know that Cory had been very vocal about his battle against substance abuse. In fact. he recently checked out of rehab after he relapsed.
Unlike the rest of the New Directions, Finn Hudson will never grow old or move on to another career or role. Cory Monteith will always be Finn Hudson, will be forever young. Words can never express the pain his family, friends, colleagues and his girlfriend (Lea Michelle) must be going through.
It’s such a tragedy, really — for someone so young and full of promise to be taken away so early.
Rest in peace, Cory Monteith.
