A few days ago, the prolific author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal died from cancer at the age of 51. I was not familiar with her work. But earlier this month, I had noticed a heartbreaking column she’d written for the Modern Love section of the New York Times, You May Want to Marry My Husband. Nearing death, Amy cheerfully extols the virtues of her long-time spouse, for the woman who may come next. I’ve often thought what the perfect partner would be like. The description of her husband, Jason, comes very close. I urge you all to read it, and look into her work, as well.
