Conaway's older sister, Carla Shreve, tells TMZ ... Travolta sent both flowers and food to the family this weekend. She says the family plans to have Conaway cremated, once the coroner's inquest is complete. The ashes will be kept with the family.

Shreve says they are working on plans for a memorial, but nothing has been finalized. 

Conaway passed away last week at the age of 60.

A hickey from Kiniki is like a hallmark card or flowers from Travolta.

chosen one, yes they usually are, welome to tmz, sometimes it scares me tht people are so heartless, but they merely want attention by being shocking or "funny"Well, whatever, it is nice to read of another persons kindness and to those who think it's a place to make funny remarks, well, maybe some day t he will remember this when a friend of t heirs dies of addiction.

It's amazing how sooo many celebrity "friends" put their sorrow statement out to the media after the guy dies... they all know he was suffering from addictions for DECADES!!! and yet the guy still kept on popping pills etc. WHY didn't they intervene and get this guy better help. DO a 5150 on the guy? Call the cops and get him busted for having drugs?

Jeff has tried to beat his addiction for years with no luck. It is hard for even family to get close to an addict how would john be able to do anything? I'm sure they hardly kept in touch. When Jeff was on Dr Drew show he was so angry there would be no way for anyone to help him. You will be missed Jeff but now are in a better place! Rest in peace!
