"He said to me once, 'Because mom passed away. I'm afraid you're going to'," John, 67, said of ten-year-old Benjamin. "I said, 'Well, it's a very different thing.' And I went through the differences about my longevity and her limited life," the Face/Off star continued.

Kelly was survived by John and two of their children 

"I said, 'But you know, Ben … you always love the truth and I'm going to tell you the truth about life. Nobody knows when they're gonna go or when they're going to stay.'

"'Your brother [Jett] left at 16. Too young. Your mother left at 57. That was too young. But who's to say? I could die tomorrow. You could. Anybody can'," he added. "'So let's look at it like it's part of life. You don't know exactly. You just do your best at trying to live the longest you can.'"
