Jett Travolta, 1992-2009. R.I.P.

This is incredibly sad.

I just read on the AP wire that John Travolta and Kelly Preston's 16-year-old son, Jett Travolta, died today at their vacation home in the Bahamas.

Travolta had a seizure in the bathroom and hit his head on the bathtub. He was found unconscious and was taken to hospital. He was afflicted with what is known as Kawasaki disease which he was diagnosed with when he was 2 years old. I had never heard of it but it has to do with inflammation of the blood vessels which can cause seizures.

Needless to say this is a blow from which his parents and younger sister will never recover.

What else can be said?

The death of a child is so heartbreaking no matter the circumstances. It seems even more tragic when it is unexpected. Unfortunately the Travolta and Preston family will now experience a generation of grief where once there was joy.
