Sunday's 65th Emmy Awards honored five late stars individually by close friends and colleagues via personal speeches. One of them was Cory Monteith.
Glee Jane Lynch remembered Cory who died on July 13 from a drug overdose at the age of 31, in just a simple, heartfelt speech.
While telling everyone how much love Cory deserved, she said ‘if you were lucky enough to know Cory as we did, and witness firsthand Cory's goofy, breezy sense of humor, his natural instinct for inclusiveness and his unbridled sense of generosity, day in and day out, I promise you would have loved him even more."
Others who received special recognition at Emmys 2013 were actor James Gandolfini, producer Gary David Goldberg, actress Jean Stapleton and actor Jonathan Winters.
