Nick Cordero's wife Amanda Kloots and his friends and Broadway colleagues gathered to pay him a heartwarming tribute. Kloots got emotional as she looked back at their marriage.

Cordero spent the last months of his life in the hospital after suffering from numerous health complications after contracting COVID-19. He passed away on July 5. According to Kloots, Cordero "would want his memorial to be a celebration that makes people smile." He wants his life to be remembered in a beautiful way because he always felt so blessed when he was still alive.

"Nick and I met during Bullets Over Broadway, fell in love, and then got married. It was a pretty good showmance, if you ask me," Kloots said as quoted by Entertainment Tonight.

"Nick would always say that we were very different, that we shouldn't be together... but I truly believe it was our differences that made us a perfect match. We got married in 2017... it was perfect, and we had Elvis a couple years later, who is just -- you know, the most beautiful little boy, and I'm so grateful that I have him, because he's just the spitting image of him," she continued.

"I love my husband so much, and I'm so proud of the fight that he did that I watched, every single day, as he fought for his life."

Kloots described Cordero as a dreamer and everybody's friend. He was also an "incredible husband" and an "amazing father, brother, son, best friend."

"I will miss you every single day sweetheart. I love you so much. Thank you for leaving us with your music,” she concluded.

On Sept. 5, Kloots took to Instagram to commemorate Cordero's second month anniversary. She shared a selfie of them together while sharing a sweet message for her late husband.

"You’ve been gone two months today. There isn’t a day I haven’t missed you, cried for you and wished I could go back in time," she wrote.

In the same post, Kloots invited everyone to Cordero's memorial and added that "there has been so much love going into making this memorial as special as Nick was."
