(LOS ANGELES) — A year after Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver, British Columbia hotel room, his Glee co-star and former girlfriend, Lea Michele, posted a tribute to him on Twitter.
“We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always,” she posted July 13.
The post comes along with a pic of Monteith, who died at 31 last year, and Michele, 27, hugging him.

Michele wasn’t the only cast member from the show to honor Monteith.
Amber Riley tweeted, “I remember your smile and your warm hugs! 1 year without you and your presence is still felt. Miss and love u everyday big bro [heart] Our Angel.”
Matthew Morrison also posted, “I personally believe Cory was reborn into some other beautiful form a year ago today. I celebrate him and his life… Wherever that may be.”
Monteith died of a mixture of drugs — heroin included — and alcohol. Before his death in 2013, the actor had a history of substance abuse and had gone to rehab earlier that year.
