Devastated John Travolta and Kelly Preston were so grief stricken about the death of the teenage son JETT it took them over two days to complete a press statement about the Friday (02Jan09) tragedy.
Actress Preston broke the silence on Sunday (04Jan09) with a note posted to fans on her website.
She wrote, "We would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks to everyone who has sent their love and condolences.
"Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered. We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives.
"We have received many messages of condolence from around the world and we want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. It has meant so much to us. It is a beautiful reminder of the inherent goodness in the human spirit that gives us hope for a brighter future."
Jett, 16, died Friday while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas. One of Travolta's lawyers, Michael MCDermott, has revealed the stunned couple started work on a brief statement on Saturday (03Jan09), but simply couldn't find the words to honour their son and explain their feelings.
MCDermott tells TMZ.com, "They stopped crying long enough to try to write a press statement."
Jett Travolta died after suffering a seizure at the family's Bahamas retreat on Friday (02Jan09). A local coroner is expected to determine the exact cause of death on Monday (05Jan08).
