John Travolta recently took to social media to pen an emotional message for his wife on what would have been her 58th birthday.
The beloved US actor is still learning how to live without waking up next to the woman of his dreams.
The Pulp Fiction actor, who lost his wife Kelly Preston to breast cancer back in July, told his fans her memory is still fresh in his mind.
On what would have been her 58th birthday, the father and philanthropist posted a photo of himself and the fallen actress during their wedding day.
He shared a side-by-side picture of them and his parents on the day they said their vows. Below the post, John attached an inspirational message meant for the mother of his children.
“Happy Birthday hon! I found this photo of my mom and dad‘s wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs. All my love, John,” the Hollywood star wrote.
A lot of the celebrity’s fans said they were moved to tears by the endearing message and hoped that John and his kids would one day find the light at the end of the tunnel.
To them, it was difficult to fathom what the actor was going through.
As previously reported by Briefly.co.za, John’s wife died in July 2020 after silently battling cancer for two years. Kelly’s husband said she chose to keep her fight private after her diagnosis.
John asked for privacy during his mourning period and announced that he would leave social media for a bit to give his kids the support they needed.
“I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal."
