  • A must read!

    I, along with many others, followed along on Instagram as Amanda Kloots documented her husband, Nick Cordero's, hospitalization and his battle with COVID-19 between March and July 2020. It was both heartbreaking and inspiring to follow the story as it unfolded and reading their story only intensified those feelings. It also showed how beautiful things can be in the midst of heartache and struggle when you have a community of people supporting and loving you. Reading this memoir made me feel like I was not only learning the story about what happened, but I also felt like I was getting to know Amanda, Nick and their families. It was clear how important family is to both of them and how that factored into this very difficult time. I also appreciated how we were given glimpses into their relationship through flashbacks and memories that helped to show that there were ups and downs, celebrations and disappointments, but at the core so much love. Amanda is one of the most positive, strong and resilient people I have encountered. Even during the most harrowing time, she remained steadfast and focused for Nick, Elvis, their families and herself. It was inspiring to learn of all of the people who showed kindness, support, love and dropped everything to be there for Amanda and Elvis. Nick, Amanda, Elvis and their families have made their mark on so many by sharing this story and I know that I'm definitely more inspired to "Live My Life" knowing you're never promised tomorrow. Rest in peace, Nick.

  • Live Your Life

    This book tells the story of the devastating loss of Nick Cordero, due to Covid 19. Nick's wife, Amanda, recounts the painful and terrifying reality of the months her husband spent fighting for his life in the hospital. She shares the immense grief of battling with him, and ultimately losing him. While her story is one of immense sadness, it is overwhelmingly a love story. It is a story about the incredible healing power of music, laughter, love, family and the human spirit. It reminds us of the fundamental goodness of our fellow humans in times of difficulty and tragedy. It reminds us to find the silver linings in all of our own stories. A beautiful tribute to the Cordero and Kloots families, and to Nick especially.

  • Heartbreaking and heartwarming

    This story was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. I, like many others, watched this pandemic unfold and learnt about Nick getting sick. Something about this couple, this family touched my heart—we were all pulling and praying for them. Reading this book I cried, I smiled —it was beautifully written —weaving in the love amongst the loss. Thank you for sharing 🙏

  • Heart breaking

    Unreal what Nicks family went through. Nick was my friend and I had to find out exactly what happened to him. I cried many times and also felt very frustrated. He deserved to live. I cannot believe all this happened. RIP Nick
