Nick Cordero's Wife Amanda Kloots Breaks Down in Tears as She Talks About Grief: 'It's So Hard'




The mom of one added that she recently had a "wonderful phone conversation" with Cordero's doctor, calling the experience "kind of a beautiful closure."

"I just wanted to share because grief is important to talk about, especially at a time right now where a lot of people are suffering from loss from this virus," she concluded her video.

Cordero died on Sunday morning at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he had been hospitalized for over 90 days due to complications related to the novel COVID-19 virus.

During his 13-week hospitalization, the Tony-nominated star faced a series of unpredictable complications that led to septic shock, an amputated right leg and a temporary pacemaker.

"My husband was a very special man," Kloots said in this week's PEOPLE cover story. "He was everyone’s friend. We taught each other things, challenging each other to grow. We loved to sing and dance wherever we were. Just looking at him doing the simplest things would bring a smile to my face."

She added, "As a husband, I don’t think a day went by that he didn’t say to me, ‘I’m the luckiest.’ Words can’t describe how much I will miss him, his presence, his voice. I’m heartbroken."

In support of Cordero's family, a GoFundMe page was created to raise funds for his medical bills.
