My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. 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 Laffoon (Heche’s son)
Due to her wish to be an organ donor, Heche had been kept on life support to see if her organs were viable for donation.
