Two weeks after the tragic death of her boyfriend and “Glee” co-star, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele posted a message on Twitter along with this gut-wrenching photo of the two of them taken shortly before Monteith died from a drug overdose.

“Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support,” she wrote. “Cory will forever be in my heart.”Michele has been busy helping Monteith’s family with his funeral arrangements as well as dealing with the “Glee” cast and crew.

Showrunner Ryan Murphy said that the show is opting to go back into production as soon as possible, thanks to Michele, who he says “was very adamant that she thought it was best for the cast and crew to get back together sooner [rather] than later so that mortgages could be paid and people could take care of their families. … She felt people really needed to be together in this time.”
