Sitting in a boat with her son in the middle of a lake, Naya Rivera spent what became her final moments. The news comes around the 7 year anniversary of her “Glee” cast mate, Cory Monteith’s, passing.
I don’t intend to make this about Cory, but i mention it because the memorial episode for him was haunting, but mainly because of Naya’s beautiful and heartfelt rendition of “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry.
Fast forward 7 years and it is as if she is eulogizing herself. She was just 33.
2020 has been a rough year for most, tragic for many and heart-wrenching for some.
At times I find myself desperately grabbing at straws. There must be some value in the quiet tragic beauty of this story. I just pray they “bury (her) in satin.”
