Good Morning,
My name is Leslie Deese, Executive Assistant to the City Manager for the City of National City, California.  Mr. Burdick was from National City, CA.  The City would like to honor Mr. Burdick in some way, but we don't have a way to reach his family (wife Jennifer or if his parents are still alive, are they in NC).  I've tried the military, Red Cross, information, etc. but am not able to get any contact information.
Any assistance you could provide would be very helpful. 
Thank you very much!
