It’s been six years since the untimely death of Glee actor Cory Monteith as a result of an accidental drug overdose. And throughout all of those years, there has not been a year when his former girlfriend and Glee co-star Lea Michele didn’t take the time to pay tribute to him.

And this year was no different.

“The light always remains,” Michelle wrote on Twitter on Saturday (July 13) alongside a picture of a picture perfect sky.

Fans will recall that Monteith and Michele were in a serious relationship when the actor died in 2013. He was just 31 years old at the time.

Michele’s social media post on Saturday (July 13) was just one of many that she has dedicated to Monteith throughout the years. Earlier this month, Michele also showed off a new tattoo that she had gotten on her upper thigh of the name “Finn,” which was the character Monteith played on Glee.

And while the pain of his passing certainly will never go away, Michele has moved on with her life, having married Zandy Reich this past March. Joining her on that special day was a few more of her dear Glee friends, including Darren Criss and Becca Tobin.
