Gone too soon. The Canadian Broadway star died over the weekend following a 95-day-long battle with COVID-19 complications. Now, Nick Cordero's wife Amanda Kloots is remembering him with an emotional video recounting their five-year-long relationship. 

Kloots took to Instagram on July 5 to share the heartbreaking news about her husband's death

"I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him," she wrote.

Cordero and Kloots wed in September 2017 and share one-year-old son Elvis Eduardo together. 

The couple met when they both performed in Bullets over Broadway together. 

In the recently posted video, Kloots wrote that their relationship began in 2015. 

The mom of one thanked her sister Anna Kloots for putting together the six-minute-long montage, and wrote that it documents her and Cordero "from day 1 till now."

"Nick always said we were completely different people that normally would never be together," she wrote. "We challenged each other and in doing so caused each other to grow and change. We pushed each other’s buttons in the best of ways."

Kloots continued, "He would always look at me and say, 'I’m the luckiest.' Well darling, I was the luckiest to get to spend five years with you and to share a son that will always remind me of you."

The heartbreaking video features photos and clips of their relationship including date nights, vacations, their wedding day, and the arrival of their son. 

A day prior, Kloots also posted a 10-minute-long compilation created by her sister that features "The Silver Linings" in the long battle that Hamilton-born Cordero and his family faced while he was in the hospital.

"How do you get through the hardest time in your life? Family," the actress writes.

She continues, "This video captures these last 95 days. The love, the exhaustion, the bonds, the smiles, the song, the exercise, the hard work, the care, support and most of all love. They did all of this for Nick, Elvis and I- selfless time from their lives to be with us." 

The many photos and videos taken over the last few months show a lot of smiles and happiness as the family came together to support Cordero.

"In times of trauma, look for the silver linings. Spend time with family. Smile through the tears. Have faith when things seem impossible. Love one another," Kloots wrote.
