Laura and I are deeply saddened by the death of Wyoming Senator Craig Thomas. During nearly 23 years of public service as a Senator, Congressman, and state legislator, Senator Thomas was a tireless and effective advocate for the people of his beloved home state. He was a man of character and integrity known for his devotion to the values he shared with the people of Wyoming. He leaves a lasting legacy as a guardian of Wyoming’s lands and resources and our country’s National Parks. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Senator Thomas’ wife, Susan, his family, and friends.
Wyoming had no greater advocate, taxpayers had no greater watchdog, and rural America had no greater defender than Craig Thomas. The Senate is a lesser place without Craig here, but the State of Wyoming and our nation are much better places because he was here.
Elaine and I extend our heartfelt sympathies to Craig’s wife, our dear friend Susan. We ask the rest of the Senate family to keep both of them in their prayers.
