“A long time ago, I was invited to be a guest star on a show called Glee, and I had the honor of meeting all my babies, those kids…they still make me proud. I want them to know I still love them and I’m proud of them. And with Naya gone, I know how that hurts them,” she said.

“She was such a sweet, sweet child…my friend, John Sawyer, passed away on Mother’s Day, my longest and oldest friend, and I thought maybe John was up in Heaven with her preparing the way. Just want to tell y’all not to lose help. It’s going to be okay,” she said while crying.

Naya‘s Glee co-stars have shared words following her passing as well.
