Amanda Klootslost her husband, Broadway actor Nick Cordero, over the weekend to the novel coronavirus.

“God has another angel in heaven now. My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.”

“I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday.”

Back in May, Kloots said she used her faith to help her through the dark times, praying for a miracle, USA Today reports.

“I am still praying for a miracle. Sometimes that prayer is answered in the way we ask and sometimes it’s answered in a way we could never understand. Faith is a beautiful thing but (also) a hard thing. True faith comes in times where we must trust in God, his plan and his will. In that, I find peace always.”

Cordero — who appeared on Broadway in such shows as “Waitress,” “A Bronx Tale” and “Bullets Over Broadway” — has struggled with the coronavirus for months before his death.
