Amanda Kloots Reflects on Grief 4 Years After Nick Cordero’s Death

Amanda Kloots is remembering her late husband, Nick Cordero, four years after his death.

On Friday, the author, fitness trainer, and television personality shared a moving Instagram tribute to Cordero, who passed away on July 5, 2020, due to COVID-19.

She wrote, “Missing Nick Cordero today,” under a post featuring a video montage of clips and old photos set to “Every Breath You Take” by The Police. “Whenever I put a post like this together, it really hits me how much loss cuts into you in ways you might never heal from. However, in going through all the pictures, as hard as it might be, I get to relive all our stories.”

She continued, “Nick was so funny, happy, full of life and love, so talented and one of the biggest dreamers I knew. Take the photos and record life. Save them, they’ve saved me through this.”

Kloots encouraged her followers to celebrate Cordero’s legacy by sharing memories of him. She also shared insights about grief that she’s garnered over the past four years.

“Grief has changed every part of me,” Kloots confessed. “I’ve become a new person in every way. It changed how I love, how I look, how I feel, how I walk, how I think, how I raise my son, how I work.”

She elaborated, “It has taught me a lot about anxiety, depression, fear, and stress. It made me weaker and stronger at the same time and more honest, vulnerable, and fearless in living my life. I learned how lucky I was to have someone in my life that loved me completely and I him. That’s rare, which I’ve also learned.”

In her poignant conclusion, Kloots stated, “Grief has been by far the worst thing that has ever happened to me, yet the most eye-awakening. In the spirit of my late husband, he said it best, it taught me to LIVE. To live my life. I miss you every single day. I’ll forever love you.”

Kloots and Cordero married in 2017 and welcomed their son, Elvis, in June 2019.

Since his passing, Kloots has repeatedly honored Cordero in numerous ways, sharing cherished memories of him on social media.
