Yesterday, Kloots took to her Instagram to share a 10-minute long clip and explained in the caption that her "family" was her way of getting through "the hardest time" in her life.
In an Instagram Live update, Kloots thanked her followers for fulfilling Nick's dream of "being a rock star" and urged them to look to her late husband's song "Live your Life" for hope.
In the lengthy note, Nick's widow explained that she woke up to a slideshow compiled by her sister titled Silver Linings. The clip, which was a documentation of the last 95 days before Nick's death, showed her family stood by her through his health battle. In her words:
"I have always been lucky to have a family that loves to be together and to support each other. I'm even luckier to have Nick's family and extended family that are the same."
Kloots noted that the video showed every emotion they ever worked though, including "the exhaustion, the bonds, the smiles, and the hard work." But the most important of them was the love her family showered on her, Nick, and their son, Elvis.
She ended her message urging her followers to "look for the silver linings, spend time with family, and have faith" in times of despair and trouble.
ET Online recalls that Amanda kept fans and followers informed about Nick's health struggles with regular social media updates that echoed positivity and strength.
Unfortunately, Nick lost the battle on Sunday morning. According to US Magazine, "The Irishman" star paid a heartfelt tribute to her saying she'll miss him "in everything we do, every day."
The following day, in an Instagram Live update, Kloots thanked her followers for fulfilling Nick's dream of "being a rock star" and urged them to look to her late husband's song "Live your Life" for hope.
