Following her car accident, Anne Heche was removed from life support and declared brain dead on Friday. Her 20-year-old son, Homer, shared an emotional statement with People on Friday.
“My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom,” he says in a statement shared with PEOPLE. “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 then shares his appreciation for those who have sent love their way.
“Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me,” he continued. “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.”
“Rest In Peace Mom, I love you,” he added.
