In recent days relatives have voiced anger that the remains of their loved ones have not been recovered but President Clinton said that many families expressed thanks for the help they have received. AN AWFUL LOT OF THEM EXPRESSED GRATITUDE TO ME FOR THE EFFORTS THAT ARE BEING MADE BY THE GOVERNMENTAL PERSONNEL, THE TWA PERSONNEL ASSIGNED TO THE FAMILIES, AND THE MANY VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE WORKING HARD TO MAKE THIS AWFUL EXPERIENCE AT LEAST BEARABLE FOR THEM.
