As the tributes and touching statements keep coming in for Cory Monteith, we are reminded over and over as to how kind and generous Cory was. It really is a huge loss.
“I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile,” said Agron, who as mean-girl cheerleader Quinn was Monteith’s first love interest on the Fox musical. “Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry.”
Agron acknowledged the show’s underdog theme — of which Monteith’s Finn Hudson was the central player — in remembering the loss of a beloved member of the series.
“We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there,” she said. “Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone’s hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me but my family.”
Here is hoping that the healing will come soon for his family, friend and co-workers.
