After being removed from life support, medical staff will give Anne Heche an Honor Walk. Heche’s family desired to remove the Actor from life support after finding a match for Heche’s organs.
The medical personnel will line the hallways to pay their respects to the late star, according to US Weekly.
According to NPR, Heche was extricated from the car as the structure caught fire and taken to the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles.
A representative for Heche’s family confirmed her demise on Friday. According to California law, Heche was declared legally dead at the time, but the spokesman informed PEOPLE that she was still on life support in order to find organ donors.
Coley Laffoon, Anne Heche’s ex-husband, posted a touching tribute to her on Instagram.
“Hey, it’s Coley. In the wake of Anne’s passing, I just want to say a few things.
One: I loved her and I miss her and I’m always going to.
Two: Homer is okay. He’s grieving, of course, and it’s rough. It’s really rough, as probably anybody can imagine, but he’s surrounded by family and he’s strong and he’s gonna be okay.
So for all those people checking in, thank you. Your check in, showing us your heart, offering prayers and everything. So beautiful. Thank you. It’s hard for me. It’s hard for my family. It’s really hard for Homer, but we got each other and we have a lot of support and we’re going to be okay.
And I think Anne is probably … I like to think she’s free. Free from pain and enjoying or experiencing whatever is next in her journey. She came in hot, and she had a lot to say. She was brave and fearless, loved really hard, and was never afraid to let us know what she thinks and what she believed in. And it was always love. It was all about love.
So goodbye, Anne. Love you. Thank you. Thank you for all the good times. There were so many. And see you on the other side. And in the meantime, I’ve got our son and he’ll be fine. Love you.”
The owner of the rental home that Anne Heche’s automobile slammed into, Lynne Mishele, has made a statement.
She expressed her sympathies in a video on Instagram, writing: “Hi, this is Lynne Mishele. The news of Anne Heche passing is devastating. Her family and her friends and her children especially really have suffered a great loss and my heart goes out to them. This entire situation is tragic and there really are just no words. I’m sending love to everybody involved.”
She was 53 years old. Let her soul rest in peace.
