Her most recent children's book, That's Me Loving You, was released in December.

In the essay, Amy called Jason "an easy man to fall in love with" and described him as a "sharp dresser" and an "absolutely wonderful father" to their three children, Justin, 24, Miles, 22, and Paris, 19. In the comments section, people wrote that the piece brought tears to their eyes, that she provided an example of what partnership could be, that her generosity was inspirational.

"When I read her words for the first time, I was shocked at the beauty, slightly surprised at the incredible prose given her condition and, of course, emotionally ripped apart".

Rest in peace, and thank you for your talent, your elegance, and your understanding, Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

Her husband, Jason, responded to the letter in a statement to People magazine: "I don't have the same aptitude for the written word".

Amy had a rare knack for explaining life, her life and ours, in a way that made sadness amusing, whimsical, bearable.

"This is when we entered what I came to think of as Plan 'Be, ' existing only in the present", she wrote.

Rosenthal, who was diagnosed in 2015 with ovarian cancer, died Monday, March 13.

Rosenthal made headlines earlier this month when her The New York Times Modern Love essay, "You May Want to Marry My Husband", went viral: Rosenthal wrote a deeply moving essay in the style of a dating ad for her soon to be widowed husband.

Rennert, Rosenthal's agent, said the essay was the "ultimate gift" to us all.

"If you're looking for a dreamy, let's-go-for-it travel companion, Jason is your man". At the end of the video, she welcomed fans to join her at Chicago's Millennium Park, on August 8, 2008, at 8:08 p.m.

"There are other things I need to be tending to, creating, and focusing on with my limited time". "How many times do I get to wake up?"

While the essay made readers' hearts ache in empathy, no one was more touched than Jason himself.
