Along with the rest of her "Glee" family, Jane Lynch has been mourning the death of Cory Monteith since he was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room last week.

During an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" yesterday, the actress choked up as she talked about how she hopes Monteith will be remembered, as well as what he brought to the show and to the lives of cast members.

Monteith, she said, was "one of the biggest hearts, a real bright light." She went on to note that the actor was "always aware" that the show was "a gift." She added that Monteith "was quite generous" and said, "I don't think he left one day unlived."

It was recently revealed that Monteith, who had openly struggled with addiction, died of an accidental overdose of heroin and alcohol.
