What a beautiful departure from the world.

Cory Monteith + “I want to get better” + Ryan Murphy

It was sad for many Glee Fans when Cory Monteith died last year. The young and talented star had a bright future ahead but his demons got the better of him and the star succumbed to an early exit from this world.

His friend and the Glee creator and executive producer opened up last year about Cory’s final words to him.

He told E News “His last words to me were, ‘I want to get better,’ and I always felt and continue to feel even in his death that he did, that he really wanted to fight it and he was humiliated and shamed,”

He went onto say:

“We reassured him that the only thing that mattered was him getting better and his job was 100 percent protected because he thought he was going to get fired. That has been feeding into all of this, why it’s so shocking and so debilitating and tragically sad because we were all rooting for him and trying to help him in every way that we could,”

Cory is still missed. It’s always sad to lose someone so young.
