“Hard to believe it’s been 4 years,” Michele tweeted. “We miss you C… love you more.”
Michele and Monteith met while filming the long-running, award-winning musical series Glee, and they soon sparked a relationship. On July 13, 2013, Monteith died at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver from a mixture of heroine and alcohol. He was 31.
Michele also remembered Monteith on the second- and third-year anniversaries of his passing. “I know everyday you’re watching over me, and smiling,” she tweeted in 2016. “Love and miss you Cory, everyday, but today a little more.”
Last year, the actor-singer got a tattoo in commemoration of Monteith. The “5” on her arm is a reference to the jersey worn by Monteith’s character, Finn, on Glee.
