Los Angeles: Lea Michele and `Glee` stars marked Cory Monteith`s death anniversary on Sunday by remembering the tragic star.

Michele posted a picture of her former boyfriend.

"We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always," she captioned the picture.

Showrunner Ryan Murphy took to Twitter early Sunday to write simply, "Miss you," with a title card remembering the actor who rose to stardom as Finn Hudson on the Fox musical.

Monteith, 31, was found dead in a Vancouver hotel a year ago. The actor died of drug toxicity.

Matthew Morrison, who played former glee club teacher Will Schuester, said he missed Monteith.

"Happy Birthday my friend... I miss you. I personally believe Cory was reborn into some other beautiful form a year ago today. I celebrate him and his life... Wherever that may be."

Monteith`s passing away forced producers to change the `Glee` story drastically as the actor`s character was originally set to take over the `Glee` club while Rachel, played by Michele, was going to go off to New York.
