JACK CAFFERTY, CNN ANCHOR: A little more information now on Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's. I told you right before the break, he died. He was 69 years old. He died at his home in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. No word on the cause of death. However, he did have a history of heart disease. He is, of course, a very famous face, fast food franchise, Wendy's International. Did all his own commercials, some of them focusing on the subject of adoption, a subject near and dear to his heart. He was an adopted child himself.
