RIP: Anne Heche laid to eternal rest at historic Hollywood cemetery

Los Angeles: Legendary Actor Anne Heche has been laid to rest at a storied Los Angeles cemetery alongside many Hollywood luminaries, her family said Tuesday.

Nearly two weeks after Heche was pronounced dead at a hospital from injuries sustained in a violent vehicle wreck, her ashes were interred in a mausoleum at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Heche's son Homer Laffoon and her other son Atlas Tupper made a statement to The Associated Press "are certain that our mother will adore the location we have picked for her; it is lovely and tranquil, and she will be around other celebrities. In recent years, the cemetery has evolved into a centre for festivals, concerts, and film screenings. 

After his mother passed away, Laffoon used tickets he had purchased earlier to attend a performance by My Morning Jacket there. He like the lively atmosphere and saw it as a hint that her tomb ought to be there. "Laffoon declared, "Hollywood Forever is a living place. Once Heche's grave marker is engraved, a modest private memorial service will be held.
In the statement, it was said, "She was our Mom, but the generosity and outpouring of the previous three days reminded us that she also belongs to her fans, to the entertainment industry, and now, to the ages. The cemetery, which was established in 1899 and is close to the Paramount Studios property, is where rockers Chris Cornell and Johnny Ramone rest beside celebrities like Douglas Fairbanks and Judy Garland.

Heche's grave lies next to Mickey Rooney's in the mausoleum in the Garden of Legends of the cemetery and faces a lake where Burt Reynolds' bones were recently transferred. Heche, 53, had a steadfast career in film and television for more than three decades. She was one of the biggest film stars of the late 1990s, co-starring with Johnny Depp and Harrison Ford.

But she frequently encountered personal difficulty, which she spoke about in interviews and a biography. On August 5, her automobile slammed into a West Los Angeles house after jumping a curb. The house and the car both caught fire. She was kept alive on life support for three more days after being pronounced brain dead on August 11 so that her organs might be donated. The Los Angeles County coroner determined that her death was accidental and that burns and inhalation injuries were to blame.
