The Travolta family has been devastated this week as the New Year brought to them the tragic death of John Travolta’s and Kelly Preston’s son, Jett. An autopsy that was performed on Monday confirmed that Jett died from a seizure disorder and there were very few details being released until both John and Kelly took to their official websites to thank their fans for the support they have received during their time of the deepest kind of grief. From Travolta.com,
“We would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks to everyone who has sent their love and condolences. Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered. We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives. We have received many messages of condolence from around the world and we want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. It has meant so much to us. It is a beautiful reminder of the inherent goodness in the human spirit that gives us hope for a brighter future.
With love, John, Kelly and Ella”
There have been a few ridiculous stories floating around about the circumstances surrounding Jett’s death, some of which have related it to Scientology. I’m not even going to repeat them here as I find it disgusting that anybody would question anyone in the family after they have just suffered such a huge loss or that people would try to make a scandal of something so sad. I believe that there may just be no greater grief than losing a child and it’s so important at this time that we leave these people alone and give them the time that they will need to mourn and grieve. Let’s for once keep the cattiness out of it. Jett is being buried today.
