Michele, 26, took to Twitter to thank fans for their support.

“Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart,” she wrote.

Monteith, 31, was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, Canada on July 13.

Monteith had been open about his struggles with addiction.

Michele stuck by his side when he voluntarily checked into rehab earlier this year.
