(Mary Schmich)Rosenthal's "Modern Love" essay contained this passage, along with the fact that her first tattoo was "j," for her husband, who has an "AKR" tattoo."I want more time with Jason. I want more time sipping martinis at the Green Mill Jazz Club on Thursday nights," Rosenthal wrote about her husband of 26 years. I probably have only a few days left being a person on this planet. "I am wrapping this up on Valentine's Day, and the most genuine, non-vase-oriented gift I can hope for is that the right person reads this, finds Jason, and another love story begins."The column recounts the couple's September 2015 trip to an emergency room for what they thought was "no-biggie appendicitis."Instead, Rosenthal was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, canceling many of the couple's plans and putting them on what she called "Plan Be," or "existing only in the present."New York Times editor Daniel Jones, who edited Rosenthal's column, said the essay was submitted by her agent.
It became one of the most popular "Modern Love" columns, with millions of readers, Jones said."A lot of the response worldwide was how generous this was — this idea that you want your spouse, who's left behind, to find love again," Jones said.
