Lea Michele showed another sign of returning to some sort of normalcy after retreating from the public eye to grieve and mourn the loss of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith. (She needed alone time and we don't blame her.)

A few days after tweeting a photo of her late BF and saying he will live in her heart forever, she was spotted in L.A., wearing a necklace with his name on it.

Michele was snapped on Sunday, July 28, the first time she had been seen since Monteith's July 13 death from a drug and alcohol overdose. The singer and actress, 26, wore dark shades and pulled her hair into a ponytail. But it was her necklace that made us stop, sigh, and say "Aww."

Michele has worn the necklace previously, so it's not a new memorial to her late love. But it certainly takes on new meaning now that he has passed away. It hangs close to her heart, which is where he remains.

Michele will resume production on Season 5 of 'Glee' on Monday, Aug. 5, which was revealed by her castmate Naya Rivera during her appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!.'

All eyes will be on the actress as she further navigates her heartache and her job.

R.I.P., Cory!
