# 2

This is so sad, praying for her and his family

# 3

I havent stopped crying since i heard. I cannot. just.why.

Wishes of lots of sthrength to Lea, she will need it in the time comming. To deal with passing of your mate is one of the hardest things in the world to do.

I think they were really good friends. It’s hard to keep up pretenses after the death of one-half of the pr setup. Tough call. Can’t admit their romance was a lie but even tougher to carry on pretending that they were more than friends. The wisest thing to do for her right now is to just not say anything. In any case, it’s still devastating to all who loved him.

@Conundrum: Can you please stop it! Cory just passed away and you’re here implying that they were just faking a romance, please be more respectful this is not the moment. Praying for his family and friends this is just so sad :(

@Conundrum: you are either lost your mind or completely heartless. Such an insensitive comment on such a wrong time

Oh, gosh, poor poor Lea. I can’t imagine her grief right now. Such a tragedy.

@Conundrum:

What on Earth are you thinking? This is not the time to make comments such as that no matter your opinion. It’s insensitive and the lowest of low.

I was no Gleek but it’s always sad when someone with such talent passes away at a young age and my heart goes out to his friends, family, colleagues and Lea.

Lily and Opal, Con is making rude, inappropriate comments to get people upset/enraged, etc. Don’t fall for it. Ignore the comment and mourn the loss of Cory Monteith however you see fit!

I am no fan of Lea or Glee at all (never even watched) but god, this must be devastating, this girl is going to go through awful times. Can’t even imagine all the bad thoughts and pain that must be hitting her now.

praying for lea in this harsh time :/

stay strong lea!

Its shocking to hear that someone like Cory, who although did have substance abuse issues but seemed like he had it under control, could just suddenly die.

If it were some other out of control celebs, you’d think ‘ya, saw that coming.’ But Cory Monteith? So sad. Far too young to pass away.

I am saddened by his passing and my comments weren’t meant to be hurtful/disrespectful. I know all who loved hm are devastated, including Lea. I was just acknowledging that she is put in an even more difficult position than the rest. I have no doubt her grief is real.

@ Connundrum Just stfu and say R.I.P. Cory! With that said, hope you’re at peace now Cory! You will be missed big man. And prayers go out to the family, lea and friends during this difficult time. I’m still shocked!

Absolutely SHOCKED. So sad. My heart goes out to Cory’s family, friends and Lea. God Bless. Cory is gone way too soon. Heartbreaking news. @Conundrum: A SS H OLE! You got what you wanted, ATTENTION. Now GO AWAY!

I bet Lea broke up with him and that sent him into a downward spiral. Of course, she can’t admit that now without her looking really bad.

Gleefan and con, u are both thoughtless and insensitive pigs. Rest I peace cory….prayers to your lady and your family and friends.

I’m in complete and utter shock! I can’t process this news, I keep wishing it was a hoax because this cannot be happening. To think that Cory and Lea are supposed to get married in the next two weeks… Oh gosh, poor Lea. A huge condolences to Cory’s family, friends, fans and the Glee cast.

they broke up weeks ago

My heart hurts for Lea and for all the people who loved him and tried to support him and stand by him. He’s in a better place. RIP Cory.
I’m grateful that he had a chance to share his gifts and his talent with us.

Poor gal..Dunno y but dis brings bak izzie/denny moment frm GA..RIP cory!!

So sad. I cant say I’m shocked like most of you. I didn’t know him but it seems every time I read about him he was in or out of rehab. Dealing with substance abuse at such a young age rarely ends up good.
