Six months after Nick Cordero's death, his wife Amanda Kloots honored "all the bits" she loved about him in a moving tribute marking the sad anniversary.
Actor Nick Cordero died in June 2020, about three months after he landed in the hospital, having contracted the novel coronavirus and fighting for his life in the ICU.
Amanda Kloots, who recently became a co-host on "The Talk," shared her late husband's health battle as it unfolded, and now six months after his death, she continues to share her battle and his memory.

To honor what Cordero meant to Kloots, the 38-year-old took to social media on Tuesday with a sweet video clip of her husband and penned reverie as she wrote:
"Today marks six months since Nick passed. Honey, I miss every single bit of you. All the bits- the ones I loved and the ones that drove me crazy."
THE FACE OF COMFORT
The particular video stood out to Kloots because it showed her late husband being himself. Seeing him and hearing Cordero's voice also gives the fitness instructor a sense of comfort, as she added:
"He’s taking the dogs on a walk in Central Park making up little songs. To hear him sing and speak gives me so much comfort. It’s as if he hasn’t left."
Even so, Kloots felt the emotional weight of the first holidays without Cordero. Their son, Elvis, turned one in 2020, and spending their first Christmas together without Cordero was hard, but New Year's was harder.
Kloots shared her favorite picture of Cordero ahead of Christmas.
A CAUTIOUS APPROACH
Because a new year represents a new slate, Kloots previously said that she couldn't forget about last year and begin anew, partially because its tragic turn of events made her fearful of what the new year could bring.
However, after grieving the loss of her 41-year-old husband, whom she met when they worked together in "Bullets over Broadway" in 2014, Kloots said she is ready to address the trauma through therapy.
Kloots shared her favorite picture of Cordero ahead of Christmas, which happened to be a snap taken with their son Elvis on Christmas 2019, their last holiday together.
The heartwarming image showed the late actor holding his son, who looked adorable in his onesie, as they both laughed while looking at the camera.
