Dear the Higginbotham family, I am Gary's friend in California and had sent a letter since I had not heard from him for some time. My condolences on your loss of your brother. He was a good friend and an outstanding researcher in baseball and football. I will have many fond memories of our visits and letters. We have lost a great person and he cannot be replaced.
