Cory Monteith's close friends are reportedly set to pay tribute to the tragic actor at a special memorial at his Los Angeles home on Friday (19Jul13). The Glee star's mother reportedly had his remains cremated on Tuesday (16Jul13), a day after coroners ruled he died from a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol, and now his closest pals are planning to gather in private to remember Monteith as they continue to mourn his passing. A source tells America's In Touch magazine, "It's at his house. The invite was informal - just a Facebook message telling us to come to the house at night. Everyone is going to tell funny stories and bring photos." The actor was found dead in a Vancouver, Canada hotel room last Saturday (13Jul13) and his TV co-stars are still struggling to come to terms with the news. Taking to Twitter.com on Thursday (18Jul13), Chord Overstreet writes, "Thank you guys for all the love and prayers you've been sending out. Means a lot" and Naya Rivera adds, "Getting back to feeling like myself again thanks to a relaxing London Town pamper day. Thank you for all of the support this week." Meanwhile, fans are also planning to pay tribute to the late Glee star on Friday, with two memorial events planned in Vancouver.
