news broke Monday she had died from cancer.
Travolta, who co-starred in a series of films with the stunning actress, posted two photos to
Instagram Monday of Alley with a brief, but heartfelt message.

“John and I, we both really want to do it, because we think it’s funny that we’re the grandparents,” Alley reportedly said.

according to a US Weekly report.
“I almost ran off and married John,” she said, according to the outlet. “I did love him. I still love him. If I hadn’t [have] been married, I would have gone and married him.”
