Ms. Thomas and Wanda:
Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. My dad, Bill Daniel from St. Francisville, was extremely proud to always call Mr. Thomas his friend. Mr. Thomas was such a kind and genuine man. He will certainly be missed by you and your family yet the memories he has left will be in your hearts forever. I know that I and my family will always have fond memories of Mr. Bill.
Cecile Daniel Castello and family Lealon, Craig, and Stephen

I am so saddened to hear of the passing of one of the most kind and gentle persons that I have known. I met Bill almost 20 years ago as a patient. We always enjoyed visiting and talking about LSU sports and his family. He will be missed by all and remembered by me as a dear friend.

Bill was a kind man, friendly and always greeted us with a smile and genuine conversation. I looked forward to seeing him at LSU basketball games. He leaves behind countless people who call him friend. He will be missed.
