Right around the one-year anniversary of Glee star Cory Monteith’s death, his mother, Ann McGregor, is speaking out about her tragic loss.
"The loss is horrendous. Until three days ago I couldn't look at a picture of Cory… So there's been progress,” she told Bianna Golodryga.
Monteith died of a fatal mixture of heroin and alcohol on July 13, 2013, but that wasn’t his first close call.

"He had a lot of emotional things he was trying to figure out -- lot of it was he really wanted a relationship with his father. I think when a child gets invalidated they keep reaching even harder. They want to find out why,” McGregor said. She said he had a scare when he was 15 years old and called it a “turning point” in his life.
McGregor even brought up her son’s girlfriend, Lea Michele, who is “hurting too,” she said. “You see the sadness. I know her pain.”
