KEEPING IT TOGETHER

A source later revealed to “Closer Weekly,” how Travolta was trying his best to keep things together for their children. Ella was said to be helping him as he tried to comfort her as well.

Showing how Preston’s memory would live on, the insider shared how the family patriarch saw his wife in their daughter. He noted how both allegedly shared “strength and unconditional love” and that Ella had all of the late actress’s good qualities.

POSSIBLE BACKLASH FOR JOHN

A possible challenge that Travolta might face, besides the death of his wife, is the backlash from the Church of Scientology. The church, which the actor has been a member of for 45 years, doesn’t believe in receiving treatment for illnesses like cancer.

GETTING MEDICAL CARE

He defied them by going against this belief to get medical assistance for his sickly wife. In his announcement about Preston’s death, the star revealed how she’d gotten help from the MD Anderson Cancer Center.
