Message from Lea’s cousin:
"Cory, words cannot say how devastated everyone is right now. You were an inspiration to so many people and you had such amazing talent. You changed Lea’s life, and I cannot thank you enough for that. I promise that I will get her through this.
You always said, “Love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.” Right after I got the news that you had passed, everything went blurry. It couldn’t be. It didn’t seem real. It seemed as if you were still here, making me laugh while you and Lea made up stupid songs. You two are the only ones who can try to sound like dying cats while singing, and still sound good.
I promise to you that I am going to do everything in my power to make sure Lea is okay. I love you so much bro. Thank you for everything you’ve done. RIP baby. PS. Never forget… Don’t stop believin. Cory Monteith/Finn Hudson “
