For all of those who didn’t get to pay their respects to late Glee actor Cory Monteith prior to his cremation, friends are having a memorial for him today in Los Angeles.
Cory passed away on Saturday in a Vancouver hotel room as the result of a lethal combination of alcohol and heroin. Despite the fact that his body has already been cremated, friends are having a memorial for him at his Los Angeles home so that they may tribute to him.
A source said, “It’s at his house. The invite was informal – just a Facebook message telling us to come to the house at night. Everyone is going to tell funny stories and bring photos.”
His Glee co-star Jane Lynch talked to Jay Leno recently about how Cory touched her life. She said, “I always admired how he would get up…you know, he would fly to Mexico, he’d throw parties for his friends. I don’t think he left one day unlived. He was a real bright light in our family and we’ve lost a really great guy.”
She added, “Cory’s one of the biggest hearts, was a real bright light. He was one of those guys that…you know, he knew he was breathing rarified air….the gifts that this wonderful show us.”
