Anne Heche’s son Homer has shared a statement about his state of mind following his mother’s death on August 12.
Last week the Hollywood actress was involved in a car crash in Los Angeles and remained in a coma until her untimely death at age 53.
As previously reported, on August 5 Anne crashed her Mini Cooper into a home in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles.
It was later revealed that she had been involved in two other car accidents before the fatal crash.
The home, which had an occupant at the time, caught on fire as a result of the crash.
Heche was unconscious and pulled from the wreckage; however, due to her brain injury, she succumbed to her injuries.

“My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom,” her son Homer Laffoon said in a statement, shared by E! News.
“After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom,” Homer wrote, continuing:
“Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time.”
He concluded: “Rest In Peace Mom, I love you, Homer.”
Homer is a 20-year-old man whom Heche shared with her ex-husband Coley Laffoon.
Heche left Ellen DeGeneres for Laffoon, who worked as a cameraman during one of Ellen’s comedy tours. The actress had a second son with James Tupper after divorcing Laffoon.
