‘I know you would want us all laughing and smiling today.. So we think of you and remember all the laughter and joy we shared together. I hold you in my heart always and love and miss you so...’ Michele captioned a picture of Monteith driving as sun streamed through the car windows. 

Monteith, who played quarterback Finn Hudson on Glee, died on 13th July 2013 of a heroin overdose. His death shocked many of his fans as, although they were aware he had suffered from substance abuse problems in the past, it was thought he had sought therapy successfully. 

Michele and Monteith, who met in 2008 when they were cast on Glee, had been dating for two years before his untimely death.

Michele is currently in a relationship with Matthew Paetz.
