John Travolta and his daughter, Ella, recently honored Kelly Preston in a heartwarming way. The Jerry Maguire actress died last month after a two-year battle with breast cancer, leaving behind John and their children, Ella, 20, and Benjamin, 9.

On Aug. 21, John shared a sweet Instagram of himself dancing with Ella just like he used to do with Kelly. "My daughter @ella.travolta and I dancing in memory of momma," he captioned the video. "One of Kelly's favorite things, dancing with me."

Both John and Ella shared beautiful tributes for Kelly following her death. "She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many," John wrote. "My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly's love and life will always be remembered."
