Amanda Kloots, wife of the late Broadway actor Nick Cordero, showed how she keeps her memory alive for their 1-year-old son, Elvis.
On Thursday, Kloots shared a heartfelt video on her Instagram Story, showing her son’s face lit up while watching old movies of his dad. He even went so he kissed the screen.
In the clip, Elvis also releases an audible coo when Cordero speaks. The 1-year-old then picks up the phone and puts it in front of his face. Kloots explained that Elvis has done the same with every video she shows him with the late Broadway star, who died on Sunday due to complications from coronavirus.

“I have to tell the cutest story,” Kloots told his Instagram followers. “Of course, I didn’t wear it on camera because I didn’t expect it to happen. But I showed Elvis videos of Nick and Elvis saw it and smiled, and I didn’t even trust you, lean on the phone and give his dad a kiss . “
She added: “I kept playing the video again and he tried to keep pushing the button. He kept going in and out, kissing the phone, kissing his dad.
“Of course, my heart just melted,” she says in the video. “In a way, it made me feel so good because it made me feel like he recognizes Nick, you know? Like he knows who he is and he recognizes his dad even though it’s been over three months.”
