Secretary of State John Kerry tearfully thanked the public Wednesday for its “remarkable outpouring of good wishes” during his wife Teresa Heinz Kerry’s illness.
“Teresa is doing better, under evaluation and we hope improving,” Kerry said at the opening of talks between the U.S. and China at the State Department, appearing to choke up with emotion.
Heinz Kerry, 74, was hospitalized Sunday in Nantucket.
