Kevin McHale, another cast member of "Glee," took to Twitter, where he noted that Rivera had possessed a gigantic presence despite her petite physique.

In a similar tweet, Max Adler shared a middle finger emoji, which was directed to "July 13th", the day Rivera's body was found. July 13th also doubles as the death anniversary of Cory Monteith, another cast member of "Glee."

According to reports, it is believed that Rivera mustered enough energy to help her son back on the boat.

Joshua Sussman, who acted as "Jacob Ben Israel" on the show, expressed his grief by stating how much Rivera would be missed.

Rivera was declared missing on Wednesday, July 8, after her four-year-old son, Josey, was found alone on a boat that the pair had rented to go on Lake Piru for the day.

When asked by authorities, Josey explained that he had gone swimming with his mother. While the young boy made it back on the boat, Rivera never returned.
