"The most beautiful thing in the world happened last year. It was the worst day. It was almost like, it felt like the day actually again. I laid in bed, and I cried my eyes for the good half of the day," she recounted. "And then my girlfriend called me, and she was like, 'Oh my God, I had the most amazing dream of Nick.' "

In the dream, Cordero was "so happy and so smiley" because it was his birthday — "the one day I get to come back on earth and celebrate everybody," he said in the vision.

"And she told me that dream and in an instant, I completely reframed his death day as his new birthday. And I instantly got out of bed," she continued. "I thought to myself, 'Oh my God, if Nick is celebrating this day, then Elvis and I need to always celebrate this day as his new birthday and that he is still with us and he will always be with us.'

"And this doesn't have to be a day where I cry my eyes out. This can be a day where I get a cake and we sing happy new birthday to dad. So I think that definitely will become a tradition for us," Kloots explained.
