Cordero tragically passed away earlier this year at the age of 41 after suffering complications from COVID-19, a torment his wife regularly documented with Instagram followers.

‘Merry Christmas everyone’, Amanda began in a long caption with heart-shaped emoticons. ‘I know this Christmas looks different to many of us. It was a year filled with losses in many ways. I found that focusing on what I was doing helped me tremendously.

‘I start the day with a positive thought and go to bed counting my blessings. It’s not always easy, but it always helps. Gratitude breeds optimism. And I would say, do not wish for the absence of time. Time is precious, even when it is difficult. ‘

‘I love this picture of my family last Christmas. It was undoubtedly my favorite Christmas I can remember. Elvis was only six months old, our little Christmas present from God. We were so excited to be together for the holidays. ‘

Amanda has regularly kept memories of her late husband on her Instagram account since his death in July.

On Wednesday, she shared a video of a ring she made from her husband’s ashes.

She wrote: ‘Something very special arrived yesterday. @stephaniegottlieb made me this ring using some of Nicks’ ashes. She put a sapphire in the middle, his birthstone. This ring, engraved with NC, will one day belong to Elvis. I am constantly amazed at the ways you can incorporate ashes to keep your person close to you.

‘I love that Nick is with me in many places; the ocean, a beautiful vase, an urn and now on my hand. Nick went to Stephanie for all my jewelry, he knew I loved her designs! My wedding and engagement ring is from her, so this ring is very special to me. ‘

Kloots tied up Cordero back in 2017, and they welcomed their only son, Elvis Eduardo, one year old, last year.

She recently thought about how she spent her first Christmas without her husband and the father of her child, who died in July at the age of 41.

The interviewer posted on Instagram a photo of Cordero holding his boy, writing: ‘One of my favorite pictures of Nick and Elvis.

‘This was last Christmas. My family flew down to South Carolina and had a Hallmark-style Christmas at @montagepalmettobluff. I will never forget that. Hug your favorite close guys. ‘

Corder was diagnosed with coronavirus back in March, spending the last three months of his life in hospital.

Doctors amputated his leg for a blood clot caused by complications of the virus in April, and in May they gave him a tracheostomy tube after he had “holes in his lungs.”

Cordero died on July 5, 2020. Kloots then wrote on Instagram: ‘God now has another angel in heaven. My dear husband passed away this morning. Surrounded by love with family, he sang and prayed as he gently left this country. ‘
