Monteith, who co-starred with Michele on "Glee" died July 13, 2013 in Vancouver, Canada of a mixed drug toxicity involving heroin and alcohol. While much has changed in the years since he's been gone, one thing has remained the same-Lea Michele's devotion to her former on-and-off screen love.
"We miss you C... love you more", she added with a solo red heart emoji. In this tribute, she poses in the letterman jacket with the photo next to her heart.
Since his death, Michele has gotten several tattoos in honor of her late boyfriend.
"I wanted to make sure that I was OK with me, feeling strong and feeling happy on my own", she told Flare magazine. Michele got a small "5" inked on her back, a nod to his football jersey number on "Glee". And now Lea, who was dating Cory when he passed away, has shared an emotional tribute.
Holding a black and white picture of herself and Cory, Lea said his loss "feels like yesterday".
And fans of the late actor rallied around his girlfriend Lea Michele on Thursday, as they remembered the handsome star on the fourth anniversary of his tragic death at the age of just 31.
"What people also don't understand is that going to work is no harder than being at home and being in the house and opening up a closet and seeing a pair of shoes", Michele explained.
