GLEE fans are mourning the loss of the show’s late star, Cory Monteith, on the seventh anniversary of his passing.
The remembrance comes as the search for fellow Glee cast member, Naya Rivera, continues.
Cory played the lead role of Finn Hudson, a quarterback and glee club student, on Fox’s musical dramedy from 2009 until his death at age 31 in 2013.
Lovers of the show are currently worried about Naya, who starred as Santana Lopez on the series, as she’s presumed dead after going missing at Lake Piru in California last week, which is only making Cory’s death anniversary harder for them.
The hashtag #7YearsWithoutCory began trending on Twitter on Monday morning, with fans having a difficult time believing it’s already been seven years and others hoping Cory will find a way to help with the Naya search.
One fan tweeted: “7 years without him. you always brought smiles to everyone. I hope you protect and guide Naya to her family. we miss you Cory Monteith #7yearswithoutcory”
Another wrote: “i know you’re up there [in] heaven keeping an eye on naya wherever she may be. i know you will some how guide us to wherever she is. #7YearsWithoutCory”
A third said: “There is not a moment in the day that I am not thinking about you. I miss you so much angel. I know you are looking over naya right now and praying that she’s okay.”
Naya has been missing since Wednesday afternoon when her boat was found at Lake Piru, with only her four-year-old son, Josey, aboard.
The 33-year-old mother is believed to have drowned in a “tragic accident,” with her son telling police they were out swimming but only he returned to the boat.
Naya Rivera search is now a recovery mission: What’s the difference between a recovery and a rescue mission?
DIVERS assigned to Naya Rivera's Lake Piru disappearance have described their efforts as a "recovery mission" after it was first labeled a rescue mission.
Recovery missions are only enacted when the missing person is presumed to have died.
Naya was declared missing after her four-year-old son was discovered alone on the pontoon boat they had rented.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department began searching for a presumed drowning victim after responding to a report of a boy left alone on a boat at around 4.48pm on Wednesday, July 9, they said in a press release.
A recovery mission is ordered when the team concludes the missing person is dead, "thus risk to personnel in an all-out effort is unwarranted".
The search continues for Naya, though, the rescue has shifted to a recovery mission as she’s presumed dead.
Aside from fans hoping Cory “can give a miracle” and help guide rescuers to Naya, they’re also sharing solo tributes about how much they miss him.
One mourning Gleek said: “Every anniversary is hard but this one feels v difficult with everything going on.
“We miss you everyday n forever wishing u was back here filling our lives with sm joy, cory monteith our quarterback”
Other fans wrote that he’ll “always” be in their hearts and that they “couldn’t miss” him more.
“You were a light in everyone’s life and we’re all so lucky that you shared your talents with the world,” a lover of the series tweeted. “You’ll always be our quarterback.”
Cory passed away on July 13, 2013, at a Vancouver hotel, after accidentally overdosing on various drugs, including heroin and alcohol.
A few years into his time on Glee, he began dating his co-star Lea Michele, who played one of his onscreen love interests Rachel Berry.
The two were together from early 2012 until his death the following year.
Five years later, Glee lost another cast member when Mark Salling (Puck) died by suicide in January 2018, after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography but prior to his sentencing.
