Actress Anne Heche’s eldest son Homer Laffoon has shared a touching farewell to his mother after her death.
“My brother Atlas and I have lost our mother. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with deep, wordless sadness. I hope my mother is free from pain and begins to explore what I likes to imagine like his eternal freedom,” Homer confirmed in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“During these six days, thousands of friends, family and fans have let me know their hearts. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my father, Coley, and my mother-in-law Alexi, who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you, Homer,” the statement concluded.
The ‘Six Days, Seven Nights’ star was in a coma and suffered a ‘severe’ brain injury after being involved in a serious car crash a week ago, a rep for the actress told Fox News Digital.
