Remembering Sen. Thomas

From Billings Gazette:

President Bush called Thomas “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,” Bush said.

Vice President Dick Cheney, who held Wyoming’s only House seat before Thomas replaced him in 1989, called Thomas a friend and said “he never let us down.”

“Even in a time of serious illness Craig was faithful to his duties in the United States Senate,” Cheney said. “His passing represents a profound loss to the Senate, to Wyoming, and to America.”

Sunflower Desert has some more tribute quotes from other friends and associates of the Senator.
