Nick Cordero and Amanda Kloots.

"The last thing he ever texted me was to look out for his wife and one year old son, Elvis", Braff wrote alongside a photo of Cordero and Kloots.

In the picture, young Elvis sits on his mother's shoulders as both wear smiles.

"'Am I also acknowledging everything that has happened and acknowledging my sadness?' It oftentimes doesn't hit me until night when I'm going to sleep", she says.

"Nick and I saw this show on Broadway years ago and we left the theater in tears, speechless. Truly, I am scared", she admitted. "But I know it's going to get easier every day".

Kloots, who has continued to update fans since Cordero's death from coronavirus complications, reminisced on her husband's legacy.

"I promised him in the hospital that I would try to do that", she recounted. "So, when I heard these lyrics yesterday I thought, 'Ok".

"I kept playing the video again and he kept trying to press the button, and he just kept going in and out, kissing the phone and kissing his dad, ' she said. It will be my motto'".

She concluded: "This is a long journey ahead and a down road I never thought I'd be on. I've talked about everything else about this process, so it feels oddly wrong not to acknowledge about grief", she shared. There isn't a ideal way.

Kloots then shared the lyrics to the song, which include uplifting lines such as: "I believe I have inside of me / Everything that I need to live a bountiful life". "I have faith that God is leading the way and that Nick is our angel".

While hospitalized, he suffered from multiple infections, sustained lung damage, spent time in a medically induced coma and required a leg amputation, among other health issues.
