I remember Mrs. Burkhardt making me feel so welcomed in her home, when I worked with Judy and Gerry at Dawn Supply/Robertson Supply in the late 70's and early '80's. She was a wonderful cook and I still have recipes in my recipe box that she had written for me. I always admired the entire Burkhardt family and wished that I had stayed in touch with them over the years.
