Hello Ruth,

If you knew the couple well before the husband died, a nice personal note from you mentioning how lovely you thought they were together, or recalling another memory you have of them as a couple, is perfectly fine.​ ​Focus on the positive. They had 49+ years together which deserves to be acknowledged, unless you feel it will be distressing for the widow.
