LOS ANGELES (AP) – It was a chance for Cory Monteith’s “Glee” family to say farewell to the actor. Fox TV says Glee co-star and Monteith’s real-life girlfriend Lea Michel was on hand for yesterday’s memorial in Los Angeles – as was the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy. They, cast members and crew shared memories of the actor in what was described as “an emotional celebration” of Monteith’s life. Montieth was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia on July 13. An autopsy revealed he died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol. Glee will do a special tribute episode honoring him – and addressing the death of his character, Finn.
