    WASHINGTON, June 4 — Senator Craig Thomas, a three-term Republican from Wyoming, died Monday evening, just hours after his staff reported that the treatment he was receiving for leukemia was no longer working. He was 74.



    Rest in peace my fellow American.

    I wish his family condolences and feel for them in this very sad time in ther lives.

    74 is hardly YOUNG. I am sure he lived a full life.

    Actually that is pretty young. I work part time with seriors and we have 12 memebers in our group over 90 years old and they all are in really good health. they can live by themselves and 1 guy still drives from time to time. So 74 is young given all things. And 74 might be old to our standards but when I look at our group and see these folks from 69-95 I'm amazed at the marvels of medicine.
