Sen. Thomas Was Heart of Wyoming Delegation (Sen. Mike Enzi)

I am so stunned. The Senate will not be the same. Craig was the core of our delegation. He was a fierce advocate for Wyoming. He served on the critical Finance Committee and was ranking member of Indian Affairs among others. He made a difference when we served in the Legislature. He filled the Congressional seat held by Dick Cheney.

He was my Senior Senator, a confidant, mentor and friend. Diana and I were made to feel a part of Craig and Susan's family. My prayers go out to Susan and their family through these difficult times. I will miss him.
