My mother, Mrs Zerbe used to work for William 's brother, Richard Dietrich. She had the pleasure of meeting William and seeing him on various visits to Mr. Richard Dietrich's house. She found him to be a very cordial, up beat, and pleasant man. We are sorry he has passed, but he will be remembered in the best way.

I remember the great times we spent together while going to Episcopal
Academy. The long nights playing monopoly and just enjoying each others company. We had exchanged Christmas cards all through the years until two years ago. I will miss you!

Billy and I were best friends at Episcopal Academy and spent many happy days together, We exchanged Christmas cards up to a year ago. I wondered what happened when I didn't get one. Love,

Mr. Dietrich was extremely supportive to MANNA and its mission to provide nourishing meals to people suffering with HIV/AIDS and other life threatening illnesses. MANNA will always be grateful for his philanthropy and caring heart for those we serve.
