Many celebrities mourn the death of Kelly Preston. One of them is Demi Moore, who shared a passionate tribute to her long-term friend in a throwback photo.
Moore uploaded a throwback snap on Instagram that features herself, her ex-husband Bruce Willis, Preston, and John Travolta. In her post, Moore called Preston a "tender-loving soul."
"The world has lost one of the most beautiful, kind, generous, tender-loving souls that has graced this earth," the actress wrote. "Rest easy [Kelly Preston], we will miss you."

SHE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED
In the photo, Preston and Travolta posed beside Moore and Willis, who was holding one of his daughters while Preston playfully nibbled on the child's feet.
As reported by Daily Mail, the photo was taken from when the couples hung out in 1991 or 1992. Preston died on July 12 after secretly battling breast cancer for almost two years. She was 57.
A devastated Travolta announced the news in an Instagram post. "Kelly's love and life will always be remembered," the actor wrote.
"A BEAUTIFUL SOUL"
Rita Wilson, the wife of actor Tom Hanks, also paid tribute to the late actress, as reported by The Blast. Wilson described Preston as "a beautiful soul, sparkling eyes exuding kindness and strength" in her post on Instagram.
Preston and Travolta exchanged their wedding vows in 1991. They were blessed with three children - Jett, who died in 2009, Ella, and Benjamin.
Preston initially met Travolta in 1987 while filming "The Experts."
SHE MADE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
Ella also wrote some emotional words about her late mother on social media. In her post, Ella said that she has never met anybody as "courageous, strong, beautiful, and loving" as her mom.
Ella thanked her mother saying that no matter what happened, she was always there for her. She also expressed gratitude for the late actress for "making the world a better place."
As reported by E Online, Preston first met Travolta in 1987 while filming "The Experts." They did not immediately have a relationship because, at the time, Preston was still married to Kevin Gage.
When Preston broke up with the actor, she had a relationship with George Clooney. After she and Clooney split up, she started a relationship with Charlie Sheen. The two were engaged before deciding to end their relationship.
Preston then began a relationship with Travolta. The couple remained devoted to one other for the next three decades, up until the actress's death.
