Naya Rivera Remembered by Ex Ryan Dorsey & 'Glee' Co-Stars on Her 35th Birthday

Naya Rivera is being remembered on what would have been her 35th birthday.

On Wednesday (January 12), the late actress’ ex-husband Ryan Dorsey and several of her former Glee co-stars took to social media to pay tribute to her on her birthday.

“Made the visit today to see you, to spend some time. Up the hill I went, memories flashing through my mind as I drive… The end is inevitable for all of our lives, passing other people doing the same, I see some wiping tears out of their eyes… Approaching where you rest, bouquet of daisies and baby breath,” Ryan wrote on Instagram along with a cute photo of Naya and their 6-year-old son Josey.

“Trying to hold it together, feeling all I feel, eyes getting wet still can’t believe it’s real… Step by step walking by each marker it’s all so surreal,” Ryan continued. “Getting closer gritting my teeth trying to keep it together… I look up in the sky and notice the weather… I suppose trying to distract my mind but reality comes back quick nobody knows…why. Why you had to leave us behind… I hope it gets easier as time goes by, but forever is forever, and I’ll never know why.”

Ryan concluded, “You would’ve been XXXV. Able to finally look at a couple videos today, I guess you can say I’m doing better…but better is just a better word for forever sad, this shit is unbelievable forever. -RD 🖤🖤🖤 X 🖤🖤🖤🖤”

Naya tragically drowned during a boat trip to California’s Lake Piru with her Josey, who was 4 years old at the time. Her death was confirmed July 13, 2020 after a five-day search by authorities.

Along with Ryan‘s sweet message, Naya‘s Glee co-stars Heather Morris, Kevin McHale, and Jenna Ushkowitz also honored their late co-star on her birthday.
