Today is a devastating day of John Travolta because his lovely wife and American actress Kelly Preston passed away at the age of 57 due to breast cancer.
Preston had been battling breast cancer for two years. Her sad death was confirmed by her husband and actor, John Travolta. He paid his tribute to his wife in a heartbreaking way by writing a heartbreaking letter to her. He wrote:
“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”
After the death of his son Jett due to a seizure at the Bahamas holiday home in 2009, he said how painful his wife’s death was to him. However, he is still fortitude. He continued:
“My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side.
Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal.”
Preston is a former model and actress who starred in Jerry Maguire, and she met Travolta on the set of The Experts. They had been married for 29 years. The couple lived in Florida and were both practicing Scientologists, and have another nine-year-old son, Benjamin.
