Sherwood Schwartz was a writer to the end.
Following the death of the "Gilligan's Island" and "Brady Bunch" creator on Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter has published a letter that Schwartz requested be released upon his death.
"A Conversation at the Gates," imagines Schwartz "standing in front of the Pearly gates" where he reflects on his life, family and career while talking to "the Voice."
"Your not the first writer to knock at my gate," says "the Voice" in the letter. "But at least you were successful. Many writers are not."
'That's true," Schwartz responds in the letter. "I've been well-rewarded with plenty of money for me, for my family and for my many charities."
The letter concludes with Schwartz reflecting that "Heaven is where I have been since the day I was born." Click here to read the letter in its entirety.
