“It’s always hard when I speak about Cory because I miss Cory,” Ryan told People. “It’s a very sort of sad feeling when I think about him. I miss him. I loved him. I think about him every day.”
He added, “I think that he was taken too soon, [that's] one of the great tragedies to me. I do think that he influenced and helped so many people, and I have to hold on to that. It’s too overwhelmingly sad.”
Cory tragically died back in July 2013 after consuming a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol.
