Should people include any information about themselves, or just how long they have known him, etc.? Thank you in advance.
The letter should give information about how the author knows your husband. They can include information about themselves to the extent it is relevant to showing how well they know your husband and/or any special qualifications or credence they have in offering an opinion about your husband's character.
Instead of just offering a laundry list of positive adjectives, it helps a lot to offer specific examples or a story illustrating your husband's positive traits. The examples should be drawn from the author’s direct knowledge and observations (e.g. "I heard around town that he is a good guy and once helped an old lady cross the street" is not very helpful).
Such a letter should indicate the relationship between the person and your husband, and include examples of your husband's good character (i.e. helpful friend, devoted father and husband, etc.) from their perspectives (for example, if they have coached a team together, helped out at a school event, or worked together).
