Actor Zach Braff, who gained international fame after starring in the comedy series ‘Scrubs,’ went to his verified Instagram account the other so as to speak out about Amanda Kloots‘ book on his “best friend,” Nick Cordero.
As known, the Tony Award-nominated Broadway star passed away on July 5, 2020, due to complications related to COVID-19. Once the devastating news confirmed by the medicals and his family, Braff jumped into his social media accounts and released heart-breaking tributes; what’s more, a couple of weeks later he got a tattoo to honor his late friend.
The actor, who has been through tough times due to the tragic passing of his friend, released a photo of the book titled ‘Live Your Life: My Story Of Loving And Losing Nick Cordero’ and thanked Kloots for her “magnificent job.” Underneath the photo, he added:
“This is hard for me to read. I had no idea what a gifted storyteller she is. Through all of the painful anecdotes about Nick’s illness is a beautiful love story. Equally as powerful, is the tale of a family, a group of friends, a community (both local and strangers from across the globe) coming together to pray and hope for a miracle, but at the very least, lift up our friend with love.”
Even though he is holding a book about Cordero’s passing, Braff stated that he still cannot believe his friend is gone. Praising Kloots’ strength, the actor concluded his words as follows:
“I can’t help but shake my head and look up at the sky. Where else does one turn to look? I am in awe of Amanda’s strength. Day after day, this tragedy beat her down, and each day she stood back up and said, Not today. All whilst raising a baby. There is such resilience in the human soul. Especially when it’s fueled with hope and vitality and love.”
According to the official synopsis of the book by Kloots who had to raise her newborn on her own after her husband had passed away, ‘Live Your Life: My Story Of Loving And Losing Nick Cordero’ is spreading “uplifting message for life in the time of COVID.”
