Travolta's tribute to his late wife comes five months after he posted a sweet message to Preston in honor of Mother's Day. Sharing a video featuring a montage of photographs of Preston, the clip also showed images of the pair's three children and Travolta himself.

The first image in the video, which was set to the tune of Barbra Streisand's song "That Face," featured a black-and-white photo of the Grease star with "From me to you" written in white lettering.

"We love and miss you Kelly. Happy Mother's Day 💐❤️," Travolta captioned the post at the time.

"I've learned a lot from all of the strong and powerful women in my life, I thank you all for being such wonderful role models," the couple's daughter Ella captioned her own Mother's Day tribute. "I miss and love you, mama."
