- I extend my sincere sympathy to all of the Huddleston family in this time of loss. I will always remember Lyndell as being very kind not only to me but to my mom and dad. I am so happy that Lyndell and I got to talk in these past couple of years after many years of no communication. Lyndell will always have a place in my heart.
