Amanda Kloots Honors Her Late Husband Nick Cordero With Memorial Post Following His Passing From COVID-19
On Saturday, Amanda Kloots shared a memorial for her late husband, Nick Cordero, after it was reported that he died from coronavirus complications. On her Instagram today, Kloots told her fans and followers that she and her family and friends held a small memorial for Nick.
Amanda said Nick would've wanted her to celebrate his life with old stories, laughs, and positive memories. She added that he would've loved it. This past Sunday, Kloots confirmed the news that her husband, Cordero, died after several months of battling against the coronavirus.
He was 41-years-old. According to multiple reports, the Broadway and Hollywood community commemorated the late actor who previously worked on productions such as Rock of Ages and Waitress . This Tuesday, Kloots thanked her fans and followers for continuing to offer their support during such a difficult time.
Followers of the case know that Amanda and Nick's struggle was intense. For instance, following his hospitalization for what doctors initially thought was pneumonia, they had to install a temporary pacemaker and also take off one of his limbs due to complications from blood-clotting medication.
Kloots shared on her account that medical professionals told her the only way to keep Nick alive at the time was to take off one of his limbs so the blood had less tissue to flow through, that way his heart could continue beating.
Ever since he was hospitalized, Amanda kept her spirits up by updating her fans on his fight with COVID-19. At one point, she claims she was told to say "goodbye" to Nick because he had a very small chance of making it out alive.
Kloots said she was holding out hope as much as she could every day. Amid his struggle against the contagious virus, Amanda also celebrated the birthday of her and Nick's son, Elvis, who just became a one-year-old this year.
The fitness instructor said it was so sad that Elvis' father wasn't able to see their child have his monumental birthday.
