  7. That picture is just how I remember Violet. I had asked Thomas Hurt about her just a few weeks ago. I think Thomas, my younger brother, Jim Huddleston, and I are the only first cousins left from our grandparents, Susan and Franklin Huddleston. The last time I saw Violet was at a funeral for a Britt cousin about 15 years agoand she was still beautiful then. I’m sure she will be missed. Hazel Huddleston Fisher
