She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. …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. All my love, JT.”
Travolta is a longtime aviation enthusiast and has held a pilot's license since the 1980's. He once owned a commercial passenger plane before donating it to the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society.
