Homer Laffoon, Anne Heches' son, wants his mother's tragic death to be free of suffering.
In a statement, my brother Atlas and I lost our mother. After six days of almost unbearable emotional turmoil, I am left with a deep, unrelenting sadness, he tells Page Six.
Hopefully my mom is released from agony and is beginning to explore what I like to think of as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and supporters made their hearts known to me, according to the author.
I am grateful for their support as well as my Dad, Coley, and my stepmother Alexi, who continue to be my rock during this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Mom, I love you, Homer.
Heche, who died at the age of 53 on Friday one week after her fatal automobile accident, shared Homer, 20, with his ex-husband Coleman Coley Laffoon. The couple married from 2001 until 2009.
Atlas Heche Tupper, a 13-year-old boy, was also shared with her Men in Trees co-star James Tupper.
On August 5, the actress was involved in a tragic accident that resulted in her in a coma and severe burns that required surgery.
Heches' rep told Page Six on Thursday night that she was not expected to survive.
Due to the wreck, she suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and was still in a coma at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in Calif.
Her spokesperson explains that she has been on life support for a long time. Any donations are not considered viable, as she has been on life support since 2010.
After her blue Mini Cooper collided with a house in Los Angeles last Friday, the Vanished star became unconscious and went into a coma.
Along with severe burns, a Heches spokesperson told us that she suffered a significant pulmonary injury that required mechanical ventilation.
Heche was apparently under the influence of cocaine at the time of the accident, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Heche said in a 2017 interview with Access Hollywood that she hoped to be remembered for her positive impact on her children.
What do you hope people would say about you when it comes to the last words, since it's titled The Last Word and given what you're talking about, as far as last words go? a producer asked the star at the premiere of her film.
She prayed, saying, Oh lord oh lord. I hope I made my children happy and gave them a life they deserve.
