Remembering Cory Monteith



I’m a Glee fan.  It took me a while to admit that.  At first, I just tuned in for the music but as the show progressed I found myself smitten with Finn and Rachel, crying when Kurt was bullied, and cheering when Burt and Carole got married.  Today, I’m crying for another reason.  Cory Monteith was the heart and soul of Glee.  The “was” in that sentence feels very strange.  As Finn Hudson, he was the show’s leading man, the troubled hero, and the lost boy.  His character captured our hearts and that would not have been possible without the earnest performance by Cory Monteith.  He will be missed.  The world has lost a great young talent.  Our thoughts are with the members of the Glee cast, Lea Michele, and Monteith’s family and friends.  In celebration of his life, we are counting down our favorite Finn Hudson performances.
