Amanda Kloots is one of the many people sharing tributes to her late husband, Broadway actor Nick Cordero, one day after his July 5 death from complications of COVID-19.

She said it was a video her sister had compiled, called “Silver Linings,” and it documented Kloots’s life since she announced Cordero had been admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for diagnosed pneumonia that turned out to be the coronavirus.

“How do you get through the hardest time in your life? Family,” Kloots captioned it.

She explained that the video captured 95 days, to be exact: “The love, the exhaustion, the bonds, the smiles, the song, the exercise, the hard work, the care, support and most of all love.”

The 11 minutes of footage showed Kloots, a fitness trainer, taking care of the couple’s now 1-year-old son, Elvis, and visiting 41-year-old Cordero in the hospital. She kept her sanity by continuing to film workouts for her followers and, most importantly, spending time with loved ones.

While Cordero was sick, Kloots regularly documented her husband’s health status. She notified fans when the Tony-nominated Broadway actor made or lost progress, such as when he had his leg amputated and a temporary pacemaker installed, and when he awakened from a medically induced coma.

She was always hopeful and regularly played his original song “Live Your Life” to root him on.

Following the sad news of Cordero’s death, his fellow Broadway actors, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sara Bareilles and Zach Braff, shared their own loving tributes.
