Cory Monteith is gone long before his time, but his positive message for fans lives on.
The short video recorded on a flight to Vancouver, shows Monteith advising young fan Mallory to "stay out of trouble and stay in school."
Many fans who had met Monteith remembered the actor fondly as a nice, gracious and caring person.
One fan experienced this when she met him on an Air Canada flight from Japan to Vancouver.
A flight attendant approached Monteith and asked him to say a few words on video to her boyfriend’s daughter, Mallory, who is a big fan of the Glee actor.
The flight attendant said he was very friendly and chatty and gladly let her take the video.
The world has clearly lost a class act.
