Nick Cordero's widow Amanda Kloots reveals friend's advice on grieving

‘Find something that’s new for you right now – that you haven’t done before’: Nick Cordero’s widow Amanda Kloots reveals her friend’s ‘really good advice’ on dealing with grief

The widow of Tony nominee Nick Cordero, Amanda Kloots, revealed the ‘really good advice’ about the mourning process she received Monday night from a girlfriend.

‘She said, “You know Amanda, I think it would be a great thing for you if you found something that was new for yourself right now – that you haven’t done before, that doesn’t have any attachment to your past with Nick and your past as Nick and Amanda,”‘ the grieving 38-year-old said Tuesday via Instastory.

‘”You have so much in your life that is with Nick and will always be with Nick, but maybe something to help you through this grief is to find that something that is new – that’s your experience and your’s alone that can make you feel comforted during this transition.” And I just loved that idea. And I don’t know what that will be, but I loved that idea and I’m going to try really hard to find that for myself.’

Amanda – who met Nick in 2014 while performing in the Broadway musical Bullets Over Broadway – said she’d ‘continue to share’ her grief with her 567K Instagram followers.

‘Some days are better than others. Sometimes it just hits you in the weirdest times and at the weirdest moments. Then sometimes you’re totally okay. Sometimes you’re laughing and you feel bad for laughing, because you’re like, “Why? I shouldn’t be laughing right now.” And sometimes you’re in tears and you’re like, “You know what, Nick wouldn’t want me to be crying right now,”‘ Kloots confessed.

‘I think my goal right now is just to take one day at a time and do what feels right on that day. So far I have found that keeping busy helps to a degree, keeping working helps, it keeps my mind going. 

‘Spending time with [our 13-month-old son Elvis Eduardo] helps and playing music helps and also quiet helps. Quiet around the home.’
