Marie Tippit, wife of Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit,  Mrs. Tippit recieved a hand-written note from Jackie Kennedy. It read,

" Dear Mrs Tippit,

What can I say to you - My husband's death is responsible for you losing your husband. Wasn't one life enough to take on that day?

I lit a flame for Jack at Arlington [Cemetery] that will burn forever. I consider that it burns for your husband too and so will everyone who ever sees it.

With my inexpressible sympathy, Jacqueline Kennedy"
