Irregardless of whether his son Jett had autism or not is no longer the question.
A son is dead, and John and Kelly Travolta's life will forever be changed by it. How devastating and sad to start the year on a very sad note. It will be a long process for them. I do not know how Scientology deals with matters of loss or if they believe in eternal life at all.
My heart grieves for the loss of their son. One of the most comprehensive reports I have read on Jett's death appears on The Huffington Post. The account includes a video of the family taken in Paris only a few weeks ago. They seemed so happy and you can see that John was a very loving father, especially to Jett. How life can change in the blink of an eye.
Our prayers go their family at this very difficult period. I pray that in God's time they will be able to use this experience to become even better people and improve the lives of others.
