    Dear Mrs. Higginbotham,
    I am so sorry that your husband passed. He was such a sweet man! We had many conversations about music. He knew the song and which band it was. I hope you can find some during the holidays. In case no one has told you lately, but you took very good care of Mr. Higginbotham. My condolences
