Nick Cordero is being remembered by his close friends and family.
On Sunday, his wife, Amanda Kloots, shared a sweet photo of herself and her 1-year-old son Elvis, whom she shared with the late actor, revealing they’d held a small memorial for Cordero.
In the picture, young Elvis sits on his mother’s shoulders as both wear smiles.
“We had a small memorial yesterday with close family and friends. I said, ‘Nick would have wanted this to be a celebration. Let’s try to laugh, share great stories and sing for him and to his memory,’” the fitness guru said. “He would have loved it. It was beautiful and perfect. His spirit was definitely there.”
“As it was being played last night the lyrics in the second half of the song hit me hard. Truly, I am scared,” she admitted. “Scared of my new normal, of the pain, the loss and being strong enough to get through it. But, I know Nick is up above routing for me, believing in me and hoping for me.”
Kloots continued, explaining that her husband would have wanted her “to be the best version of [her]self for” the sake of their child.
“I promised him in the hospital that I would try to do that,” she recounted. “So, when I heard these lyrics yesterday I thought, ‘Ok. When I’m doubting if I can get through this, I’m playing this song. It will be my motto.’”
She concluded: “This is a long journey ahead and a down road I never thought I’d be on. No one can tell me how to do it, I have to do it. I may do things right, I may do them wrong. There isn’t a perfect way. One day, one step at a time. I have faith that God is leading the way and that Nick is our angel.”
Kloots then shared the lyrics to the song, which include uplifting lines such as: “I believe I have inside of me / Everything that I need to live a bountiful life.”
Cordero was first hospitalized in late March for coronavirus. Since then, he’d faced an onslaught of stranger-than-fiction maladies that included mini-strokes, lung infections, the amputation of his leg and more.
