In June of 1945, his wife and high-school sweetheart, Arline, passed away after succumbing to tuberculosis. 16 months later, in October of 1946, Richard wrote his late wife a heartbreaking love letter and sealed it in an envelope. It remained unopened until after his death in 1988. Source: The Letters of Note book – reproduced with permission of Richard Feynman’s Estate.
I know how much you like to hear that — but I don’t only write it because you like it — I write it because it makes me warm all over inside to write it to you. I thought there was no sense to writing. But now I know my darling wife that it is right to do what I have delayed in doing, and that I have done so much in the past. I want to tell you I love you. I find it hard to understand in my mind what it means to love you after you are dead — but I still want to comfort and take care of you — and I want you to love me and care for me. I want to have problems to discuss with you — I want to do little projects with you. I never thought until just now that we can do that. We started to learn to make clothes together — or learn Chinese — or getting a movie projector. When you were sick you worried because you could not give me something that you wanted to and thought I needed. Just as I told you then there was no real need because I loved you in so many ways so much.
And now it is clearly even more true — you can give me nothing now yet I love you so that you stand in my way of loving anyone else — but I want you to stand there. You, dead, are so much better than anyone else alive. I know you will assure me that I am foolish and that you want me to have full happiness and don’t want to be in my way. But you can’t help it, darling, nor can I — I don’t understand it, for I have met many girls and very nice ones and I don’t want to remain alone — but in two or three meetings they all seem ashes. You only are left to me. My darling wife, I do adore you. PS Please excuse my not mailing this — but I don’t know your new address.
