After John F. Kennedy’s brutal assassination, President Lyndon B. Johnson took time out of his schedule to hand write two letters, one for Caroline Kennedy, and one for John F. Kennedy Jr.

To Caroline he wrote:

"Your fathers death has been a great tragedy for the nation, as well as for you, and I wanted you to know how much my thoughts are of you at this time. He was a wise and devoted man. You can always be proud of what he did for this country."

To John he wrote: 

"It will be many years before you understand what a great man your father was. His loss is a deep personal tragedy for all of us, but I wanted you particularly to know that I share your grief—You can always be proud of him."
