Cory Monteith's Sudden Death Still Prompting Tearjerking Reactions From Cast Mates (VIDEO)

Cory MonteithI'm still having a problem coming to terms with the fact that Cory Monteith is no longer with us. Found dead in his hotel room on July 13, Monteith left a legacy behind that not only affected his family and friends, but millions of his fans as well.

We've heard touching statements from Dianna Agron and Jane Lynch, as well as some of Cory's other cast mates. As more and more reactions come out, what worries me the most is someone we haven't heard from: Chris Colfer.

It was a tragic accident that no one expected. After spending years working closely with Cory on the Glee set, I can only hope that Chris is spending these difficult times surrounded by close friends and family.

While Colfer is mum on the entire situation, cast mate Jenna Ushkowitz released a touching statement on about Cory's passing, saying:

I am so grateful that Glee brought this group of extraordinary individuals together to form a family. I was lucky enough to closely experience the love and light that Cory shared with the world, as well as having the privilege of traveling down the road together on a once in a lifetime journey. Cory always reminded me to be gracious, kind, and open, and he will leave a mark in my heart forever. Thank you everyone for your constant support and love while we mourn the loss of our dear friend, and continued support to Cory's family, and to Lea.

In a concert over the weekend, Chord Overstreet paid tribute to his friend the same way that Matthew Morrison did, with song.

With lyrics like, "I just close my eyes and wait for your light," this song gives me chills. Thinking about the two actors together now makes my heart melt, remembering how fantastic I thought they jived off of one another when Chord first joined the cast.

Our hearts are continually with Cory and his family. Stay strong, Glee fans.

Has everyone forgotten that he did this to himself? While it is sad and tragic, maybe if he had as much respect for everyone that cared about him as they did for him then he would still be alive. I know everyone loved this guy, but let's not forget that he made the choice to shoot up heroin after going to rehab and plenty of his friends/ family trying to help him. He didn't want to be helped and he died for it. What is truely said is that it all could have been prevented. I'm sick of this being refered to as an accident. Did he fall on the needle?

Addiction is a disease, not a hobby. When I read some of the comments about Cory Monteiths death, I got the impression that people's knowledge about addiction is very poor.

I understand addiction better than most probably do. I have dealt with it my whole life in different ways. My cousin is on heroin. And guess what, I'm sure he's next and I will say the same thing. When Whitney Housten OD'd she got ripped apart but this guy doesn't, people glorify him, because he is on a popular TV show.

Enough, already, about this tortured, talented, blessing to the world. A dime a dozen! How will be go on? I don't understand why you all aren't just damn, right down, angry at CM for being so self-centered to engage in and support a drug use and trade that are rampant in both the US and Canada. The way I see it - the world is just shod of another junkie. No sympathy here.

Seriously? Have some kind of human compassion. While it was his choice to do what he did...the world still lost an amazing person. It's very unfortunate that he decided to relapse, but take into consideration for his family and those close to him. They lost someone who meant the world to them by a disease that plagues a lot of good people. That's fine if you personally don't care for people who make these choices and who later become addicted, but have some decency. Go troll somewhere else.

@Melissa,  Yes people realize he did this to himself.  It's sad and tragic that he was so young and couldn't get a handle on his addiction and it ended his life.  We all know he over dosed, but that doesn't change the fact that it's very hard on friends and family.  Whether someone dies from an over dose, a suicide or an accident like a car crash, the horrible feeling of loss is the same as any other time there is a death of a loved one.  This blog post isn't so much about his death, as it is about how his loved ones are dealing with his death.

 I watched my aunt suffer so badly from addiction that it literally fried her brain and became permanently disabled. Her four children, which it was her oldest that was the suicide victim, went back and forth with her for years.. being by her side,then being mad at the kind of mother she was for them. Scientists are still doing studies and finding out more and more about what causes some of us to be addicts and others who can just try something and never get addicted to it. Addiction is in my blood, I hate it, I hate it with every part of my soul! My back and hips are bad (at only 30 yrs old) I was put on narc pain meds, my body got addicted, not my brain. When I couldn't take it anymore and was literally fighting with my body about how quickly withdrawels started I went to my family and to a weeks stay at the hospital. To get off one medication I get put on four non narcs, but u know what!? Those get in a person's system too, and those can't just be stopped at a days notice either! I won't realize it at the time but just because it is legal doesn't mean you won't be addicted or it won't turn out bad for you. Any person who is pointing their fingers at a person and judging, you just remember this. When you point one finger, you have three more pointing back at you!

If it was a family member of yours, @Melissa, you would be compassionate.  Yes, he did this to himself but people still have to grieve.  Just as with anyone famous you are going to hear about it for a while.  That is the way it is.  We heard about Whitney, Michael and other celebs for MONTHS after their passing.  you don't have to read this

I think people are still so shocked by the suddeness of it all really. I really believe that is why everyone is having a hard time letting it go. It isn't that he had a problem or not, most were shocked to find out he had a problem with addcition. I know I was and it is sad that it happened and he lost his life because of something he did to himself regardless of wheather or not it was on purpose. Addcition is a disease and needs treatment and support from family and friends. Iff he was out with old friends that support went out the window and they enabled him to downward spiral instead of lifting him up.

Are all of you all stupid or something?!?! He had an addiction. Rehab or not addiction is very hard to get rid of. It's not like he woke up that day and said I think I want to die today. It was the addiction that took over his mind. I know all of you who have overcome addiction know what I am talking about. What he learned in rehab probably was in the back of his mind but addiction took over. He didn't plan to break everyone's heart, make everyone cry, hurt Lea and his family and friends. He was probably thinking like all addicts " Just one more time and I promise this is it." Unfortunately this WAS it for Corey. To are one mean bitch! Have you ever been addicted to something? Drugs, alcohol, food? Or Known someone with an addiction? If not then you need to keep your mouth shut. This is an absolute terrible tragedy!! We have lost so many wonderful people in this way. Sometimes you just can't be helped. You sure can fake it though. Nobody knows what was going on in Corey's head that day. But we do know that addiction took over. My heart goes out to his family, to his beautiful and talented girlfriend Lea, to his wonderfully talented cast of Glee, to his fans and to anyone who had the pleasure to meet Corey even just for an autograph. Please if you know someone who is suffering from addiction, do what you can and get them all the help you can get them. If it takes not leaving their side until they are fully recovered. Remember once an addict, always an addict.
