April 24 Statement from Elaine Weinstein

April 24, 2015 – Over the past 24 hours, as we mourned the tragic loss of our husband, father, and grandfather, we have been moved by the tremendous outpouring of support from around the world. We appreciate the sympathy and condolences we have received from those who knew the Warren we loved so much as well as those who did not. We are still focusing on our grief process and our family, and appreciate the continued respect for our privacy as we work through this devastating time. We want to especially thank Italian Prime Minister Renzi for his message of condolence yesterday and we want to let the Lo Porto family know that they and Giovanni have also been in our thoughts since we learned this tragic news. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of others who have been taken hostage around the world as they endure these terrible ordeals.
