Jane Lynch -- Cory Monteith 'Glee' Memorial Was 'Beautiful'


The "Glee" cast is finally beginning to heal after Cory Monteith's death -- so says the late actor's co-star Jane Lynch ... who tells TMZ, she found new comfort during today's special memorial organized by Monteith's gf Lea Michele.

Lynch was out in L.A. when we asked about the memorial -- co-organized by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy -- where the cast and crew gathered to say their final goodbyes to the late actor, sharing memories and music. Lynch gave a glowing review.

As we reported, 31-year-old Monteith died from a heroin overdose at a Vancouver hotel on July 13.

So far, it's unclear how "Glee" will handle Monteith's death on the show, but Murphy has said there will be a tribute episode that will address his passing.
