Earlier this month, terminally ill author Amy Krouse Rosenthal penned an essay for the New York Times titled "You May Want To Marry My Husband" that touched millions of people. On Monday, her longtime agent and friend, Amy Rennert, confirmed to People that the author has passed away at the age of 51.
"Amy’s final essay, written under the most difficult of circumstances — a love letter to her husband Jason — was the ultimate gift to him and also to the rest of us. She leaves behind a legacy of love and beauty and kindness,” Rennert told People.
Amy Krouse Rosenthal was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2015. In her popular essay, she recounted her and her husband Jason's fairy tale love story. In the essay, she created a moving "dating profile" for her husband.
