Nick Cordero's death is still one of the most high-profile losses that the entertainment world suffered from the novel Coronavirus pandemic. His wife, Amanda Kloots, recently marked a milestone of the occurrence.
Yesterday, Kloots posted a picture of herself and her deceased husband on Instagram. In it, she pointed out that the day marked a month since Cordero passed away. She went on to deliver a touching tribute to the late Broadway star.

Kloots' picture was as sweet as one could imagine. It depicted much happier times, with the couple smiling at the camera while at what appeared to be a restaurant.
In her tribute, Kloots explained that she wished she could say things had been easier since her husband died. However, she has realized that she kept on missing him as the days went by. Highlighting on the experience, she said:
"I wish I could see you, hold you, kiss you, talk to you, hear your voice, get a hug, see you with Elvis. Your huge presence in our lives is missed every second of every day."
Cordero's battle with the virus began with a simple pneumonia diagnosis.
Cordero's death was particularly painful. The actor had a long ordeal with the novel coronavirus pandemic, and he had been in the hospital since March 31.

The actor went into the intensive care unit of a California hospital since he contacted the virus, and he began a dragged-out battle with the illness.
Cordero's battle with the virus began with a simple pneumonia diagnosis. Doctors had tested him for coronavirus twice, but the tests were negative. On the third try, they found a positive diagnosis.
Soon after, his condition worsened, and the doctors had to put him on a ventilator. That began a rollercoaster journey. Over the next three months, Cordero moved from making a recovery to spiraling back into ill health.
As Kloots consistently pointed out, the most significant challenge was with his strength. Cordero had lost a great deal of muscle mass as he couldn't eat.

So, his weight reduced significantly, and his strength soon followed. Despite multiple surgeries and procedures to get him eating again, however, he couldn't make it. Cordero eventually died on July 5. The actor is survived by Kloots and the couple's son, Elvis Eduardo.
