Travolta Co-stars Send Out Heartfelt Messages After Family Tragedy

JOHN TRAVOLTA's friends and co-stars TIM ALLEN and FOREST WHITAKER have sent personal condolence messages to the movie star and his wife KELLY PRESTON following the death of their son.
Teenager Jett Travolta died from a seizure at the family's Bahamas holiday home on Friday (02Jan09) and messages of support from celebrities like Tom Cruise and Oprah Winfrey have been pouring in over the weekend.
And now Travolta's Wild Hogs co-star Allen and his Battlefield Earth co-star Whitaker have offered their thoughts.
Allen says, "We know how much they (Travolta and Preston) loved and adored Jett and words cannot express how sad we were to hear about his passing."
Meanwhile, Whitaker adds, "Our families have had a long loving friendship, and John and Kelly are amazing parents.
"We have watched each other's children grow and cannot imagine the loss of Jett. He was a bright and beautiful young man, and we are honoured to have known him."

My heart aches for the Travolta family. When I saw the picture of John in Jett's arms, and Jett laying his head down on his father's, I KNOW THAT LOVE. I have a daughter with a unique disability (born healthy, but now profoundly mentally disabled w/intractable seizures due to first DPT immunization). NO ONE can know how these parents feel unless you have a special child and know the kind of love they give and you give back! Jett's with GOD now, and may he help the family through this difficult time. midlifecrysisLawton, Oklahoma

My prayers and heart goes out to the Travolta family of their son Jett. I lost a father in 1988 at the age of 59 cut short from Heart Disease. I know how hard it is to lose a loved one so shortly in life. Please accept my condolences and God Bless you and yours. Blueeyesjenhotpink

My heart aches for the Travolta family. I am so sorry that you all must continue to relive this. My wish is that your happy memories will ease your sadness over the loss of Jett. I hope that you find comfort in knowing that so many people you will never even meet are thinking of you and sending light and love.
