A permanent tribute. Lea Michele’s grandmother passed away earlier this week, and on Monday night, she shared a photo of a special tattoo she got in her honor.
“I lost my beautiful grandma this week,” she captioned the Instagram photo. “She wasn't your typical grandma. She gave me my first cup of coffee when I was 8 years old. She said something inappropriate to every boyfriend I've ever had. She never made pie or knit me a sweater. But she was my grandma and I loved her... More than anything.. I love you Grandma. @prospect_tattoos Bronx NY.”

The Scream Queens star, 29, got a small cup of coffee inked on her index finger to remember her grandma. She has been in New York for several days now, spending time with her best friend and Glee co-star Jonathan Groff, who ended his run as King George III in Broadway’s smash hit Hamilton.
The besties recorded a video for the show’s “#Ham4Ham” digital lottery and Michele, who is a Broadway star herself, attended the consistently sold out production.

“There will never be another show like this,” she captioned a shot of her program, before posting another one with Groff and Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“My boys! J Groff & @Lin_Manuel @HamiltonMusical,” she wrote.
