Months after her husband, Broadway actor Nick Cordero passed away after battling COVID-19, Amanda Kloots shares how she and their son, Elvis, spent their first Thanksgiving without her husband.
This year's Thanksgiving was different for many people. For late actor Nick Cordero's wife, fitness trainer Amanda Kloots, this Thanksgiving symbolized her first Thanksgiving without her late husband around. She wrote on Instagram:
"It would be very easy to go into this Thanksgiving week counting my losses but I'm choosing to count my blessings. This guy is at the top of my list ?"

Kloots revealed that she rercently came across a passage that talks about how she should appreciate the little things that God gives her everyday. She would collect those little things one by one, and at the end of the day, she would find that she has a beautiful bouquet.
Her touching caption was accompanied by the most adorable photo of Kloots and Cordero's young son, Elvis. The adorable little boy was all dressed up in dark blue denim overalls over a white shirt.
His wispy blonde locks framed his face while his vibrant big cute eyes focused in the upward direction. The young boy was captured hanging on to green monkey bars as he stared off into space.
Elvis was too precious to look at, and Kloots' fans were touched by the little boy and her heartfelt words. Comments came flooding in as they praised her for being so strong and positive. Cordero would be proud.
The broadway actor's wife recently revealed that even after his death, she and Elvis still include him in their daily routine.
When Cordero was in medical care battling for his life, Kloots documented their journey as their fans, and social media followers gave their support and good wishes from all over.
The broadway actor's wife recently revealed that even after his death, she and Elvis still include him in their daily routine in the sweetest way. In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Kloots said:

With Thanksgiving out of the way, Kloots and her little one is now looking forward to Christmas. Again, their first without Cordero. The fitness trainer revealed that they have, in fact, started preparing.
