Rep. Patrick Kennedy Thanks Americans

From Times Wire Reports

Speaking in Providence, R.I., for his grief-stricken relatives, Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.) thanked Americans for their expressions of sympathy over the death of his cousin, John F. Kennedy Jr. "It made an enormous difference in my family's ability to cope with this very tragic loss," said Kennedy, 32, a son of U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.). JFK Jr.'s private plane crashed off Martha's Vineyard, Mass., July 16, killing him, his wife, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, and her sister Lauren Bessette.
