I had to go about the day pretending that it was just another tragic but ultimately inconsequential piece of Hollywood gossip; I mean, I’m just a fan and moreover, I’m an adult ! I’m allowed only to a decorous amount of grief for the loss of a star I befriended only in my mind and through the screen.
However, this deep sadness kept on grabbing at me whenever I had a moment of silence. I really feel the loss of Cory Monteith as the loss of a dear friend. I love his art and that wave of tenderness and simplicity he spread around him.
What would I have told him if we had actually been friends? Well, I think I’d have told him this:
I hope we’ll meet in heaven and sing together free from sorrows, illnesses and aches.
