Amanda Kloots & Nick Cordero's Son Elvis Has Memory Bear Made from His Late Dad's Dressing Robe
Amanda Kloots has been ensuring that she keeps her late husband, actor Nick Cordero's memory alive as soon as possible. In a recent update, she shared a sweet gesture from a family friend.
Yesterday, fitness instructor Amanda Kloots shared a snap on Instagram showing a family friend’s gesture in the wake of her husband Nick Cordero’s death.
The picture showed the couple’s 17-month old son, Elvis, sleeping beside a memory bear. According to Kloots, a family friend had made the bear from the dressing room robe Cordero wore on his last show.
The show, tagged “Rock of Ages,” was a musical production that Cordero starred in back in 2012. While it was not the late actor’s most memorable body of work, it was still significant in his life.
Kloots’ picture showed Elvis sleeping with the lovely bear, which the family friend had made and sent over. It also included a pocket with the toddler’s name stitched on it. As Kloots said:
“[...]You don’t have to bury someone and say goodbye if you don’t want to.”
The fitness instructor added that she had enjoyed keeping Cordero’s spirit alive as much as she could. Gifts like these definitely make the process easier. As she said, Elvis would have the bear for the rest of his life and probably even pass it on to his kids. This way, a piece of Cordero will live on.
Kloots explained that she and Elvis kiss Cordero goodnight every day, looking at his photographs.
Kloots has had a pretty rough few months, as many can tell. Cordero died from the novel coronavirus in July, following a battle with the disease that lasted for months.
The actor got his diagnosis earlier in the year, and his condition worsened sharply. He eventually went into a hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, where he ultimately failed to get the strength he needed.
Since then, Kloots has been working to keep the actor’s memory alive as much as she can. Speaking to reporters last month, she highlighted some of the ways that they keep Cordero with them.
Kloots explained that she and Elvis kiss Cordero goodnight every day, looking at his photographs. The fitness instructor added that the toddler wakes up daily to his deceased father’s music.
Kloots also explained that Elvis brings a reminder of Cordero whenever she sees him. As she pointed out, the little boy has pieces of his father everywhere, especially in his character. Beyond keeping Cordero alive in the home, Kloots has also worked to ensure that his work lives on, especially with fans.
She shared a compilation of the late actor’s audition videos, reminiscing about how they used to practice his lines together. Kloots used the video to point out the humility in being an actor, adding that Cordero did it best.
