The Christmas holiday marks the second without Travolta’s wife Kelly, who tragically passed away at the age of 57 after a private two-year battle with breast cancer.
At the time of her death in the summer of 2020, ‘she had been undergoing medical treatment for some time, supported by her closest family and friends,’ said her rep.
A year after her passing the Grease star had opened up about an emotional conversation he had with Ben about life and death.
‘He [Ben] said to me once, “Because Mom passed away, I’m afraid you’re going to,” Travolta recalled on Kevin Hart’s talk show Hart to Heart.
John continued to say that he told him ‘the truth’ and said: ‘Nobody knows when they’re gonna go or when they’re going to stay,’ while adding that he and Kelly had different circumstances due to her health struggles.
Additionally the family lost son Jett in 2009, after he passed away at the age of 16 following a seizure which caused him to hit his head in the bathtub.
