Broadway star Nick Cordero's final request to a longtime friend has been revealed hours after he died at age 41 from suffering severe medical complications after contracting the coronavirus.
In a heartbreaking post to Instagram, "Scrubs" actor Zach Braff shared that Cordero had asked him to take care of his wife Amanda Kloots and their son, who was born last year.
"The last thing he ever texted me was to look out for his wife and one year old son, Elvis," Braff wrote on Sunday.
The 45-year-old actor also paid tribute to his pal in his post, which featured a black and white photo of Cordero and Kloots.
"I have honestly never known a kinder person. But Covid doesn’t care about the purity of your soul, or the goodness in your heart," Braff wrote.
"I promise the world they will never want for anything. I feel so incredibly grateful I got to have Nick Cordero enter my life," he added. "Rest In Peace. Rest in Power."
Cordero spent more than 90 days in Cedars-Sinai hospital before passing away, according to Kloots
"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," she wrote in an Instagram post on Sunday.
"I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him.," she added. "Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday."
Cordero was admitted into the emergency room on March 30 and suffered various health setbacks, including mini-strokes, blood clots, septis infections, a tracheostomy and a temporary pacemaker implanted. He had been on a ventilator and unconscious and had his right leg amputated.
