Amy Krouse Rosenthal is dying from ovarian cancer. She's a successful children's book author, but what she wrote about her husband is heartbreaking. She wrote him a dating profile for after she's gone.
In one of her final works, she wrote a beautiful article about her struggle and her marriage in the New York Times. She wrote the following because she wants him to find love after their 26 years of Marriage.
"I have never been on Tinder, Bumble or eHarmony, but I'm going to create a general profile for Jason right here, based on my experience of coexisting in the same house with him for, like, 9,490 days," the 51-year-old wrote. He is a sharp dresser.
"Our young adult sons, Justin and Miles, often borrow his clothes. Those who know him — or just happen to glance down at the gap between his dress slacks and dress shoes — know that he has a flair for fabulous socks. He is fit and enjoys keeping in shape."
"If he sounds like a prince and our relationship seems like a fairy tale, it's not too far off, except for all of the regular stuff that comes from two and a half decades of playing house together," she wrote. "And the part about me getting cancer. Blech."
She also went on to say he showed up at their first ultrasound with flowers. And he's an excellent cook.
