He left behind his wife of three years, Kloots, and their one-year-old son Elvis.

The video depicts much of the pair’s happy time together, from videos of the family playing with their son, to Cordero jamming out at home on his guitar.

“Two years ago today Elvis and I said goodbye to Nick. It was the hardest day of my life,” she wrote in the caption.

“There hasn’t been a day I haven’t missed him. Nick was a presence. His smile and laugh lit up a room. He loved everyone and was a great friend to anyone that knew him.”

When Cordero was admitted to hospital with COVID-19 in March 2020, neither he nor his wife could have seen the tragic journey that awaited them.

Over a course of several weeks, Cordero’s health deteriorated drastically while he stayed in an intensive care hospital unit.

He was put into a medically induced coma, had his right leg amputated after struggling with blood clots, was given a temporary pacemaker, lost more than 60 pounds (29kg), and was preparing for the possibility of a double lung transplant.

But Kloots says she’s refusing to make the anniversary a sombre one.

In her caption, she explained why, reflecting on a “dream” a friend of hers had told her about.

“We were all at a party and Nick was there looking happy and radiant. When [my friend] asked him why he was there he said, ‘What do you mean? Today is my birthday. It’s the one day I get to come back and celebrate with everyone I love’.

“Hearing this completely changed my mood,” explained Kloots. “He’s celebrating today? He’s happy? Birth and death have so many similarities.”

She now says she’s “reframed” the day to be one of celebration, rather than sorrow.

“July 5 is Nick’s ‘new birth’ day instead of his death day. This idea brought a positive light to an otherwise dark day,” she said.

In another video which you can watch above, Kloots speaks with friend and CBS News journalist David Begnaud about her grief.

“Right now for me, grief, it’ll hit me like a tonne of bricks out of nowhere. For instance, I went to a show last night, I got home…and a song from Journey came on, that Nick sang in [Broadway musical] Rock of Ages.

“I looked over at the passenger seat and it was empty, and it hits you like a tonne of bricks,” she said, suddenly tearing up.
