From Representative Tom Lubnau's Tuesday Facebook post:
My good friend Sue Wallis died, today. She was 56 years old. The State of Wyoming is a sadder place, today, because of her absence. While I didn't always agree with Sue, I always respected the tenacity of her beliefs, and her willingness to say exactly what she thought. Those qualities are rare and getting rarer. The business of the legislature can wait a day or so, until we respectfully mourn the loss of our good friend.
From US Senator Mike Enzi
“I was sorry to hear about the death of Sue Wallis. She faithfully and passionately served Campbell County and the State of Wyoming for many years, years that were cut short. She embodied the Wyoming spirit of fierce independence and doing what one thinks should be done even if it would be easier not to. Diana and I send our condolences, thoughts and prayers to friends, family and all who have benefited from Sue’s service to our Wyoming community.” Last Updated on Friday, 31 January 2014 06:04Read more: Colleagues Of Sue Wallis Reflect On Her Life and Service

Crews continue to work on the road and get it re-opened, but we need some warmer temperatures, and those aren't expected to be here until tomorrow.
