Heinrich left a letter behind to be given to his Mother in the event of his death. Notice the tear stains.

"Dear Mother !
This letter I write with hopes that it will never reach you. If it should, please carry it courageously and strong, because the you will provide a son the greatest honor.
We did go with enthusiasum and desire into battle, and we knew that at the end would be death. Exactly as we followed our path, so should you follow yours and be proud of us. Dear Mother, I thank you for all the beautiful and good things you have done for me. Who could have had a more wonderful childhood than Gerhard and me. I can at least say that I had a wonderful life and died a good death for Germany.
Your pain will subside when you think about it. If I had 1000 lives, I would be ready to die 1000 deaths for the fatherland. I close with the hope that Gerhard will be alive with you.The best wishes for him, as he knows brotherly love does not require additional words of comfort. Write Margot and comfort her. I loved her very much, she is young and has the future in front of her.
Dear, Dear Mother!
Your Heini "

A reply to an inquiry about Heinrich's death. It confirms that he was killed at the airfield at Malemes (per British head shot). Also states that a photo was taken of his grave but has not been developed yet.
