Lea Michele has paid tribute to her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith, on the third anniversary of his death.

The ‘Glee’ actress posted a photo of Monteith by the ocean on Instagram and wrote ”We may not have gotten to share a lifetime together.. But the memories.. they’re the best of my life.. Love you Cory”.

The two starred in Glee together and Monteith passed away in a Vancouver hotel in 2013 from a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol. The actor had been struggling with substance abuse for many years and had spent time in rehab the year before he died.

Michele has spoken candidly and openly about Monteith’s death in the past and recently spoke about how she began dating again saying ”I worked very, very, very hard and I got back to that place where I was genuinely happy and strong and ready to live again and see the world and, you know, bring in more beautiful experiences.”

I think we can all agree, he was taken too young.
