One year ago yesterday, Cory Monteith died in a Vancouver hotel room.

The shocking passing of this Glee star (from a heroin overdose) still affects his friends and former colleague today, no one more so than Lea Michele, who was dating Monteith at the time he died.

In memory of her late love, the actress shared the following photo of Monteith on Twitter yesterday, along with the following message.

Happy Cory Monteith

"We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always," Michele wrote.

One year ago today, Cory Monteith died from a fatal heroin overdose.

The actor's shocking passing caused Glee to delay shooting for a few weeks while colleague mourned, especially girlfriend Lea Michele. 

She went on to release her first solo album, saying in many interviews that Monteith helped her write many of the tracks and that many were penned with the star in mind.

Take "If You Say So," for example.

Glee creator Ryan Murphy, meanwhile, has already said that he knows the final scene of his series (which wraps up in 2015) and that it will serve in some way to honor Monteith's memory.

We've published the following photo montage with the same goal in mind and continue to extend our condolences to the late actor's loved ones...

RIP, Cory Monteith

Cory Monteith would have turned 32 years old yesterday.

Sadly, of course, the Glee actor died of a heroin overdose in July. But his former costar and girlfriend, Lea Michele, took to Twitter yesterday and made it clear Monteith may be gone... but he's not forgotten.

"The biggest heart and most beautiful smile.. In all of our hearts.. We love you so. Happy Birthday," Michele tweeted along with the above photo of her and Monteith sharing a laugh.

The late Cory Monteith and other stars were notably absent from the 2014 Academy Awards' In Memoriam segment last night, sparking debate among fans.

A moving tribute paid homage to stars such as Paul Walker, Shirley Temple, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and James Gandolfini, but omitted other big names.

Bette Midler made her Oscars singing debut during the segment, performing "Wind Beneath My Wings" as a montage of stars we lost flashed on screen.

Notably left off the list were Cory Monteith, Dennis Farina, Jonathan Winters, Dennis Farina, Tom Clancy and Sarah Jones, a camerawoman who recently died.

This isn't the first such snub; Farrah Fawcett and Corey Haim were not mentioned during the In Memoriam segment of the Oscars in previous years.

Do you think Cory Monteith and the other omitted names deserved to be included? Why do you suppose that some made the cut and others did not?

Lea Michele has released another track off her debut album.

But this one is extra special and emotional for the artist/actress.

The song is titled "You're Mine" and Michele told Ellen DeGeneres a few weeks ago that she often breaks down upon listening to it because: 

"It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think of him, I play this.”

Michelle, of course, is referring to Cory Monteith, her late boyfriend who died of a drug overdose in July. Listen to the track now and then to a few others off "Louder."

Billy Joel once memorably sang that "Only the Good Die Young."

While his point was that you should live your life, not be consumed by preconceived inhibitions, the phrase certainly still rings true in modern day Hollywood.

Be it from substance abuse or other tragic circumstances, some of the world's most beloved stars have met an untimely end long before they should have.

From Philip Seymour Hoffman's heroin overdose and Paul Walker's fatal car crash to some whose deaths remained shrouded in mystery, it's a long list.

Scroll through The Hollywood Gossip's gallery of 21 shocking celebrity deaths below as we look back on some of the brightest stars who we lost too soon.

They may be gone from this world, but they are not forgotten:

Thanks to the band Bonnie Dune, the spirit of Cory Monteith is not all that lives on months after the death of this actor.

The group released "Maybe Tonight" online this week, which marks the final track Monteith recorded prior to his tragic drug overdose in July.

It's one of six singles on the band's EP "Miramar," which includes the late actor/musician.

As relayed by Jossip, frontman Justin Wilczynski says it was the former Glee star who pushed to get the band back together shortly before his passing.

"We finished these particular six songs quite a while ago,” the artist said. “Some things happened where Cory needed to take a break, and we realized that he was struggling and that he was having a hard time, so we took a bit of a hiatus from the writing and recording process."

Listen to the song now:

Especially when it comes to Michele's debut album, "Louder," which will be released on February 28.

The late Glee actor Cory Monteith's name was embarrassingly misspelled during an "In Memoriam" tribute segment at the 2014 Grammy Awards Sunday night.

When Monteith's name flashed on screen in at the live event, fans and audience members were shocked to see that his surname had the "i" and "e" flipped:

Cory Monteith Grammy Tribute

It's a tough name to spell, and was just an honest mistake the editors regret, but it's still upsetting for many Glee fans still mourning the deceased star.

Cory Monteith was found dead Saturday, July 13, in a room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in downtown Vancouver after missing his noon checkout time.

An autopsy and toxicity screening showed that the 31-year-old died of an overdose, officially termed mixed drug toxicity, with heroin and alcohol in his system.

However you want to spell his name, he'll never be forgotten. It just hasn't been the same to watch Glee ever since he was taken from us far too soon.

In other embarrassing (but more pleasant) Grammy news ... you have to see the reaction of Taylor Swift thinking she won Album of the Year when she didn't ...
