    Twentieth Century FOX Television says "Glee" co-star Lea Michele, Monteith's real-life girlfriend, and show creator Ryan Murphy gathered the show's cast and crew for a memorial on Thursday. They shared memories and music in "an emotional celebration" of Monteith's life.

    The 31-year-old actor was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia, on July 13. An autopsy revealed he died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.
