Over the weekend, days after the 1-year anniversary of Naya Rivera’s death, a number of Glee cast and crew members shared photos from a recent union.
Among those in attendance included actors Heather Morris, Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz as well as screenwriters Michael Hitchcock and Matt Hodgson.
“Missed this crew so much!!! So good to be back and get to see all you wonderful people!! ❤️❤️❤️,” Chord Overstreet, who portrayed Sam Evans on the show, wrote in a heartfelt Instagram post commemorating the occasion.
Accompanying the sweet message were two photos of the group looking silly while posing for the pics.

Your legacy lives on in kindness and being “that sassy queen” in my eyes. I love you forever bebe girl.”
“I miss you. Every single day,” McHale said in his post.

Rivera, who played Santana Lopez, a cheerleader and star glee club member, died on July 8, 2020 at age 33 as a result of a drowning accident after she and her son Josey, now 5½, rented a boat at Lake Piru in Southern California
When the boat became overdue for return, the staff at the lake found the vessel at the north side of the lake with the star’s sleeping son aboard. Her body was found five days later, and authorities believe the actress and singer died saving her son.
