In one of the most shocking celebrity deaths to date, Cory Monteith passed away on July 13, 2013.
He died of a heroin overdose after a night out with friends in Vancouver.
All this time later, this loss is still felt by fans of Monteith, along with those who knew him best.
Below, we've collected a number of tributes to Monteith from Lea Michelle and company three years after they were forced to say goodbye to Cory...
I know everyday you’re watching over me, and smiling. Love and miss you Cory, everyday, but today a little more.
Today I woke up thinking abt ur smile & how infectious it was. U made us laugh & feel loved everyday
The minutes become days, and the days become years… but you always remain so close. I miss you, Brother.
Naya Rivera Dorsey
Always missed and never forgotten.
The time may pass but the warmth of your generous soul and the humility in your goofball nature will never fade. You are and always will be our quarterback. We miss you, friend.
Three years ago my best friend was about to get married, I was 7 months pregnant and was delivered the news that Cory had passed away. I was weary to get too emotional in fear that I would go into labor too early. Not only was Cory the most genuine, always the guy to stop and say hi to fans, but he made everyone around him laugh… obvi this photo is proof. He was our family. We miss u bud.
There's no one quite like you. The greatest guy. The biggest heart. I love you man!
