Anne Heche to Receive Honor Walk by Hospital Staff
Anne Heche will receive an Honor Walk by hospital staff after being taken off life support. Heche’s family wanted to wait until a match for Heche’s organs was found before taking the Actor off life support.
According to US Weekly, the hospital staff will line the corridors to pay their respects to the late star.
Heche was pulled from the vehicle as the building erupted in flames, and was rushed to the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles according to NPR.
On Friday, a spokesperson for Heche’s family confirmed her death. The spokesperson explained, “Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy. Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.” At the time, the spokesperson told PEOPLE that Heche was legally dead according to California law, but she was still on life support while searching for recipients for her organs.
Anne Heche’s ex-husband, Coley Laffoon, shared an emotional tribute 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.
