Description
These are condolence letters and cards sent to Virginia Heinlein after Robert’s death. It is a difficult file to read as the grief in the letters is quite powerful, but also many beautiful sentiments are expressed. Letters from friends, family, and fans are all mixed together. Letters are sorted alphabetically.
 
Moments from the condolence letters:
 
“I noted one error in the AP obit. It stated that you survived him and that you and he had no children. The writer was mistaken. There’re millions of us.”
 
“Robert Heinlein showed me the stars as an adolescent, and gave me the means to reach them as an adult. I’m still reaching. I’ll meet him there, one day.” by a NASA flight controller
