I worked with Betty at Wilhold in Sunbury. I will always have fond memories of our time together at Wilhold. She shared her recipe for Hot Milk Sponge Cake in 1974. I am still making Hot Milk Sponge Cake to date. It is one of my family''s favorite cake. I remember many stories of Rod & Robin when they were growing up. I trust the prayers & memories of friends sustain you during this most difficult time.
