It’s um…

A bit lonely here sometimes

And I don’t know if I will ever see you again

Just don’t forget me ok?


Rosenthal is a surname believed to come from a very old German origin, possibly one of the very first on record. Dubbed an “ornamental” it translates literally to one who resided by a field of roses, its early German origin (13th century) was often based upon mythical situations. It often implied the person possessing the name had red hair or a ruddy complexion. Much like the painting of Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais, depicting the off-screen death of the maiden from Hamlet.

Private Rosenthal Dead

Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais, Bt

There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds
Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke;
When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide,
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up;
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes,
As one incapable of her own distress,
Or like a creature native and indued
Unto that element; but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death.

– Hamlet
