After announcing her husband’s passing, Kloots shared a video her sister made her of the time the family has spent together during the Tony-nominated star’s battle.
“How do you get through the hardest time in your life? Family,” she wrote alongside the video, which her sister titled “The Silver Linings."
“I have always been lucky to have a family that loves to be together and to support each other. I’m even luckier to have Nicks family and extended family that are the same.”
She continued: "This video captures these last 95 days. The love, the exhaustion, the bonds, the smiles, the song, the exercise, the hard work, the care, support and most of all love. They did all of this for Nick, Elvis and I- selfless time from their lives to be with us. In times of trauma, look for the silver linings. Spend time with family. Smile through the tears. Have faith when things seem impossible. Love one another. ❤️."
