We all have heavy hearts after discovering that one of Hollywood’s beloved actresses Naya Rivera’s body was found on Southern California’s Lake Piru early morning on Monday July 13th.
The Ventura County police officers have been searching for Naya for 6 days after she disappeared from jumping off a boat she had rented with her 4-year old son, Josey Dorsey. According to her son, Naya jumped off of the boat but never came back up.
What even makes this more heartbreaking was Naya’s body was found on the same day Cory Monteith passed away from an overdose seven years ago on July 13th.
We all remember the meaningful song Naya sang on Glee, “If I Die Young,” when the cast paid tribute to the death of Monteith.
A fan tweeted out that Naya broke down performing this song, now we’re the ones breaking down singing this song to her.
Today marks the 7th anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death. You broke down while singing this for him, now we’re the ones breaking down singing it for you. You’ll forever live on in our hearts, Naya Rivera.❤️pic.twitter.com/toTYF9yuRN
One of our favorite songs from Glee is when Monteith’s character [Finn] turns the upbeat hit song “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, into a slow piano version. Finn confronts Santana [Rivera] about her interest in women and that he will always be by her side with any challenges she has to face.
“Look you were my first, that means something to me. You mean something to me. If something ever were to happen to you and I didn’t do everything I could to try and stop it, I’d never be able to live with myself.”
Naya even shared after Monteith’s death back in 2013 that he was a special part of this world.
“Cory was and always will be a part of my own family and a good friend. He was a special part of this world and will forever be missed.”
All of us miss both Cory and Naya. They will always remain in our hearts and whenever we hear the song “Valerie” we will think of Naya when she performed the song on Glee.
Other Glee stars have shared sweet pictures and messages on social media remembering the times they have spent with Naya on set. Not only was she a great co-star but a wonderful person to have in your life.
Chris Colfer who played Kurt Hummel wrote a long caption about his co-star with a black and white photo of them together.
“How can you convey all your love and respect for someone in one post? How can you summarize a decade of friendship and laughter with words alone? If you were friends with Naya Rivera, you simply can’t. Her brilliance and humor were unmatched.”
Kevin McHale [Artie] also wrote a beautiful message about Naya and that he can’t imagine a world without her.
