Right before the newest issue of People comes out tomorrow, Nick Cordero’s widow, Amanda Kloots, took time Wednesday and Today to reveal how much she misses Nick, and what a wonderful father Nick was.
“My husband was a very special man”. “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 adds, “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.”
Kloots remembers, “I don’t think a day went by that he didn’t say to me, ‘I’m the luckiest.’ ”
“He lived for that little boy,” Cordero’s Rock of Ages costar Constantine Maroulis tells People. “He was born to be a parent. They both were.”
Efforts to remember Nick by the Broadway community were put in motion Wednesday as a MoveOn.org petition successfully collected 30,000 signatures to rename the Longacre Theater “The Nick Cordero Theater”.
