‘Merry Christmas everyone,’ Amanda began in the lengthy caption with a heart emoji. ‘I know this Christmas looks different for a lot of us. It has been a year filled with loss in many ways. I have found that focusing on what I do have as helped me tremendously.

‘I start the day with a positive thought and go to sleep counting my blessings. It isn’t always easy, but it always helps. Gratitude breeds optimism. I would say too, don’t wish time away. Time is precious, even when it’s hard.’

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

Amanda has been regularly preserving memories of her late husband on her Instagram account ever since his passing in July.

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

Doctors amputated his leg due to a blood clot caused by complications with the virus in April, and they gave him a tracheostomy tube in May, after developing ‘holes in his lungs.’

Cordero died July 5, 2020. Kloots wrote on Instagram at the time: ‘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.’
