Cory Monteith's Glee co-stars are, understandably, devastated by his death from a heroin overdose.
Dianna Agron shared her thoughts on Cory in a new statement: "I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile. Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry.
Dianna also spoke about growing up on Glee together, as well as Cory's generosity and talent.
She added, "My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us."
On last night's Tonight Show, Jane Lynch fondly remembered Cory as "a real bright light," who was "generous" and adventurous."
Jane told Jay: "Cory had one of the biggest hearts, a real bright light. He was one of those guys. He knew he was breathing rarefied air--the gift that this wonderful show gave us."
She added, "He was one of those guys who was always aware that it was a gift. He was quite generous and one of those adventurous types of people who would--he'd fly to Mexico, he'd throw parties for his friends."
Jane summed it up by saying: "I don't think he left one day unlived. He was a real bright light in our family we've lost a really great guy."
