Friends And Family Support Travolta And Wife At Son's Memorial
JOHN TRAVOLTA and wife KELLY PRESTON were supported by a small group of family and friends as they mourned the tragic death of their son JETT at a private memorial service on Thursday (08Jan09).
The 16-year-old died after suffering a seizure during a family vacation in the Bahamas on 2 January (08).
He was cremated on Monday (05Jan09) after an autopsy was carried out to confirm the cause of death.
The grieving family, including young daughter Ella Bleu, flew back to their home base in Florida for the moving service.
The house was surrounded by press and photographers, with security hired to keep media intrusion at bay.
The tragic death of Jett triggered a string of condolences from well-wishers and Travolta's film co-stars, with Tom Cruise struggling to find words to convey his grief on U.S. TV show The View, saying, "It's horrific. Both of them are doting parents. Wonderful people."
