Mira Sorvino Sends Love and Sympathy to Travolta Family

The tragic news of John Travolta's 16 year-old son Jett passing away made headlines all over the world, and condolences from fans and fellow celebrities starting pouring in.

Jett Travolta suffered a seizure while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas over the New Year. Early autopsy reports confirmed that the cause of death was a "seizure disorder."

It was a vacation John and his wife Kelly Preston will never forget. They went away as a family and came back home with their son’s ashes.

As a parent, losing a child is the most difficult experience, near heart stopping. So it's no wonder why people from across the world have been sending their best wishes and condolences to Travolta family.

Actress Mira Sorvino talked to Hollyscoop at the Palm Springs International Film festival on Tuesday, where she sent her deepest condolences to John and Kelly.

"I’m terribly terribly sorry for them," Mira told Hollyscoop exclusively. "I send my love and sympathy to them. I cannot imagine how much pain they must be in right now. It’s the worst thing that can ever happen to a mother or father."

Speaking about her own children, Mira said, "I love my children more than life itself. There’s nothing in the world that compare to loving children. Before I had them, I never knew what love was.”

A small family and close friends memorial for Jett is reportedly planned for tomorrow near the family's home in Ocala, Florida. The local newspaper has started a community forum online at www.ocala.com if you'd like to leave your condolences for the family. Our hearts go out to the family. Hopefully they can get some peace after the memorial.
