Anne Heche’s sons call her resting place ‘Serene’ as actress’ final arrangements revealed

Anne Heche’s death certificate reveals that the actress will be buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.

The certificate, obtained by PEOPLE, also lists Heche’s disposition as cremation/burial on Aug. 18. Her final arrangements were made by Hollywood Funeral Home.

A statement shared with PEOPLE on Tuesday on behalf of Heche’s son Homer, 20, read: “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. We’re confident our mom will love the site we’ve chosen for her; it’s beautiful, peaceful, and she’ll be among her peers in Hollywood.”

“Most importantly,” continued the statement, which was first published by TMZ, “Hollywood Forever is a vibrant place where people go to movies and concerts and other events. She was our mom, but the kindness and explosion in recent days has reminded us that she also belongs to her fans, the entertainment community and now, to the ages.”

Heche was taken on August 14, nine days after she was involved in a fatal car accident on August 5.

The actress remained in a coma for nearly a week before it was revealed on August 12 that she was “not expected to survive”. Heche was pronounced legally dead in the state of California on August 12, although her heart continued to beat until Sunday to ensure her organs could be donated in accordance with her wishes. She was taken off life support on August 14.

On August 5, Heche was behind the wheel of her Mini Cooper when she crashed into a house in Los Angeles. Both her car and her residence caught fire.

After Hetze was pronounced legally dead, the Los Angeles Police Department told PEOPLE there would be no further investigation into the crash — which was being treated as a crime before Hetze’s death.
