Ceremonies were held across the gulf coast today remembering the eleven killed in the deep-water horizon explosion including an Acadiana man.  In Eunice loved ones and residents remembered 56 year old Blair Manuel who was killed in that explosion.  Parishioners at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic church where Manuel was faithful parishioner are remembering their friend.  Deacon Gary Gaudin who was friends with Manuel says he had a very compassionate heart.
