"My dearest Jackie, you crystallize like a diamond all that he stood for. The two of you showed us what heights could be reached - and you, Jackie, are showing us how those heights can be maintained. Could you possibly give him a more fitting tribute?" - Phil Geyelin (Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post editor) and wife Sherry Geyelin. In the weeks and months following the assassination of her husband, Jacqueline Kennedy received over 800,000 letters. The impact of President Kennedy's death was so immense that people from all walks of life wrote to Jacqueline Kennedy, sharing with her their feelings of sympathy, sorrow, grief and hope. These letters have been tucked away in the Kennedy Library's archives for almost fifty years. Filled with emotion, patriotic sentiment, and insight, they are a poignant time capsule of one of the seminal events of the twentieth century. Dear Mrs Kennedy is a diverse portrait, not only of the aftermath of the assassination, but of the Kennedy mystique that continues to captivate the world.
