On May 10, a photo showed Preston posing against a white background for a family portrait with her kids. The late actress sported shoulder-length blonde hair.
Travolta wrote at the time: "Today, and every day, we celebrate you [Kelly Preston] for being the best mother to our kids. Happy Mother's Day!" Travolta and his wife have been married since 2001.
The number of comments underneath the post grew significantly in the last few days. "Bittersweet heart wrenching," wrote one fan of the situation.
Many simply shared heart emojis, while others typed up short paragraphs in hopes of comforting to Travolta and his family. Preston's family recently spoke out following the death.
