John Travolta and Kelly Preston, along with a small group of family and friends, are preparing to say goodbye to 16-year-old Jett later today, with an intimate memorial service set to take place in Ocala, Fla., this afternoon.

While no time or location has been announced for the service, it's been reported that the event will take place at the Travoltas' home at the Jumbolair Aviation Estates around 4 p.m. and will by all accounts reflect the family's Scientology faith.

Fans have already begun leaving flowers, posters and other messages of condolence for Travolta, Preston and their 8-year-old daughter Ella at the gates of their estate.

Though the memorial is expected to be kept small, Ocala officials made it clear earlier this week that they were amenable and available to lend assistance.

It's unclear if any of the Travolta family's celebrity friends will be in attendance, though Tom Cruise, for one, is scheduled to appear live on The View this morning.

Jett Travolta died last Friday while his family was vacationing in the Bahamas. An autopsy was conducted, and while the results have not been revealed, his death certificate listed "seizure" as the cause of death. His cremated remains were transported back to the U.S. by his parents on Monday.
