Anne Heche's resting place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles is likely just what she wanted.

Her son, Homer Laffoon, 20, said that he and his brother, Atlas Tupper, 13, chose the location because it was a "living" site where people attended movie screenings and music concerts.

"My brother Atlas and I want to thank Tyler, Noelle and all the amazing people at Hollywood Forever for their kindness, compassion and generosity of spirit," Laffoon said. "We are convinced our Mom would love the site we have chosen for her; it's beautiful, serene and she will be among her Hollywood peers."

"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."

Following the announcement, Laffoon's father shared an emotional post on Instagram. "In the wake of Anne's passing, I just want to say a few things," the 48-year-old stated in a video selfie on August 12. "One, I loved her and I miss her, and I'm always going to."

He added, "Two, Homer is OK. He's grieving, of course, and it's rough, it's really rough, as probably anybody can imagine. But he's surrounded by his family and he's strong and he's going to be OK."

Laffoon shared his feelings on his mother's resting place in a statement to Page Six.
