Scrubs Star Zach Braff Reveals Last Text Nick Cordero Sent Him
Tragically, Broadway star Nick Cordero succumbed to his COVID-19 related complications after a long hospital stint fighting the illness. His wife Amanda Kloots had been giving updates to fans throughout his fight and shared that had many scary close calls and even had to have his right leg amputated due to a blood flow blockage.
Now Amanda has shared that her beloved husband and new father to 1-year-old Elvis has passed away peacefully with family around him singing him his song "Live Your Life." Nicks's friend Scrubs star Zach Braff has also posted a loving tribute to the late Nick, saying "Nick Cordero Passed at 11:40am today with his wife and mother by his side. 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."

Nick Cordero passed at 11:40am today with his wife and mother by his side. 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. The last thing he ever texted me was to look out for his wife and one year old son, Elvis. I promise the world they will never want for anything. I feel so incredibly grateful I got to have Nick Cordero enter my life. Rest In Peace. Rest in Power.
Braff, who had met Nick while they worked together on the set of Bullets On Broadway added "The last thing he ever texted me was to look out for his wife and one year old son, Elvis. I promise the world they will never want for anything. I feel so incredibly grateful I got to have Nick Cordero enter my life. Rest In Peace. Rest in Power."
Many of Nick's fellow Broadway stars have been also posting their loving goodbyes and support for Amanda and Elvis.
