Her post was similar to last year’s, which also feature the sun shining over water. This previous post was captioned, “There are some who bring a light so great to the world, that even after they have gone, the light remains,” The couple met on the set of Glee in 2009, and dated from 2012 until his death in 2013. The following year, in 2014, the actress opened up to Seventeen magazine about their relationship, “He was not his addiction — unfortunately, it won.” She continued with, “But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, ‘I’m your boyfriend,’ I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful.” Michele married Zandy Reich, this past March.

In addition, other Glee co-stars also shared memories of their friendship with Monteith. Kevin McHale, who played Artie Abrams, shared a photo of Monteith on Instagram. The caption reads, “The sweetest boy. Forever.” Similarly, Jenna Ushkowitz, who played Tina Cohen-Chang in the show, posted a picture of Monteith holding an anvil in a tuxedo.
