The Travolta family today brought the cremated remains of their 16-year-old son, Jett, back from the Bahamas - John Travolta and Kelly Preston, his grieving parents, are thought to be planning their son’s funeral [Website – Amy Grindhouse].
Jett’s autopsy result showed that he passed away due to a seizure. The family has now flown back to their home in Ocala, Florida, landing their private Boeing 707 jet at the Jumbolair Aviation Estates – the plane is said to have been piloted by John himself.
According to reports, the couple are planning a Scientology funeral service in accordance with their beliefs. According to E! this affects the proceedings as follows:
A hallmark of Scientology is the belief that humans are immortal spirits, or thetans—beings who have lived many lifetimes and whose potential is unlimited.
A funeral, therefore, focuses on the departed like this…
…by addressing him or her directly during the service, urging the departed to move on to better times. Tommy Davis, spokesman for Church of Scientology International, told me today that a Scientology service “addresses the person as a spiritual being and is meant to acknowledge the life they lived and their right to move on.” Scientologists also believe that Jett’s thetan will move to a new home in another human body. (an example of a Scientology service can be found on Scientology.org)
