Friend: Travoltas’ faith, family ‘solid’
U.S. film stars John Travolta and Kelly Preston are keeping a low public profile, but spending time with family and friends following the death of their son.
Jett Travolta died in January of a seizure disorder. He would have been 17 on April 13.
A family friend told People.com:
They aren't secluding themselves or paralyzed. ... (Seeing them) was like old times. Nothing awkward and no topics to dance around. There were smiles.
John is a strong man, but we want to leave him in peace, Olivia Newton-John, Travolta's
Grease co-star and another longtime friend, told the magazine.
To lose a loved one -- it's the worst time in anyone's life.
They're relying on their (Scientology) faith to get them through this, a source close to the family said.
Their faith is solid, and their family is solid.
