Lea Michele's Tribute to Cory Monteith 2019

Lea Michele Remembers Cory Monteith 6 Years After His Death: "The Light Always Remains"

HOLLYWOOD, CA - OCTOBER 26:  Actors Lea Michele and Cory Monteith onstage during the Q & A following the 300th musical performance on

It's been six years since Cory Monteith tragically passed away, and Lea Michele is making sure his legacy lives on. The 32-year-old actress, who married Zandy Reichs earlier this year, honoured her former boyfriend on Saturday with a touching photo and message on social media. She shared a snap of the sun breaking over the water on Twitter, with the caption "the light always remains" — a similar sentiment to the tribute she shared exactly a year before.

Lea and Cory were co-stars together on Glee and dated for almost two years, until he died in 2013. She keeps Cory's memory close in the form of two tattoos: one of his character's name, Finn Hudson, and the other of Finn's jersey number.
