In memory of Jett Travolta

I would like to express my deepest sympathy and condolences over the loss of John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s oldest child Jett.  I cannot imagine how diffucult it would be to deal with this kind of loss.  May Jett take repose in the arms of angels until his family is together again.  God Bless you and your family during this sad time.

To All Parents
Written By: Edgar A. Guest
(from “All In a Lifetime”–Copyright, 1938)

“I’ll lend you for a little time a child of Mine,” He said,
“For you to love the while he lives and mourn for when he’s dead,
It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three,
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for Me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief
You’ll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

“I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
I’ve looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again?”

I fancied that I heard them say, “Dear Lord, Thy will be done.”
For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness, we’ll love him while we may
And for the happiness we’ve known forever grateful stay;
But shall the angels call for him much sooner than we’ve planned,
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.”

  1. I would also like to send this poem to John, Kelly and Ella to express my feelings of how it possibly could have come from Jett himself, not necessarily through words, but from the deepest feelings they had for each other. To Jett’s mom and dad and sister Ella…Just by looking at their pictures you can see the amazing love they all had for each other. My deepest sorrow…GOD BLESS JETT FOREVER IN HIS CARE AND HIS FAMILY

    Jett fighter in the sky
    Above the clouds he’ll rise
    As the days are warm
    And the nights are bright
    Seen through his big blue eyes

    Jett fighter in the sky
    With LOVE still left to feel
    Although it may not seem to be…
    It is so very real

    Jett fighter in the sky
    I’ll take your pain away…
    “He’s up their with God smiling”
    That’s all you need to say

    Jett fighter in the sky
    Goes by to fast to see
    Forever smiling, to be so free
    Look up DAD, MOM, SIS…IT’S ME!

  2. Jett fighter in the sky
    Above the clouds he’ll rise
    As the days are warm
    And the nights are bright
    Seen through his big blue eyes

    Jet fighter in the sky
    With LOVE still left to feel
    although it may not seem to be…
    It is so very real

    Jett fighter in the sky
    I’ll take your pain away…
    “He’s up there with God smiling”
    That’s all you need to say

    Jett fighter in the sky
    Goes by too fast to see
    Forever smiling, to be so free
    Look up DAD, MOM, SIS…IT’S ME!

  4. Such a tragic story!

    Children with special needs face perils which cannot always be predicted or prevented. But that is of no comfort to the Travoltas right now. All they have for a long time is inconsolable grief.
