It was the love letter read by millions. A heartfelt essay from a dying woman to her her husband; an ode and at, the same time, an ad.
The title, “You May Want to Marry My Husband.”
In the powerful piece published last week in The New York Times, Amy Krouse Rosenthal wrote of the hope that after ovarian cancer takes her life, Jason, her husband of 26 years (or “9490 days”), could begin his next love story.
“He is an easy man to fall in love with,” the Chicago-based children’s author wrote. “I did it in one day.”
Now Jason has responded.
In a statement to the US Today Show, the father of three said, “It is Amy’s gift with words that has drawn the universe in.
“Unfortunately I do not have the same aptitude for the written word, but if I did, I can assure you that my tale would be about the most epic love story… ours.”
