Anne Heche left the world last year with an unpublished memoir. And her son Homer Laffoon announced that a second memoir, written by the actress before her death, will be published posthumously in the coming weeks. Taking to his late mom, Heche’s Instagram, Homer shared a look at the cover of the new book, titled Call Me Anne.
He also penned a long message of gratitude for the words of love and support he’s received in the wake of his mother’s death. Son of Anne Heche started his note writing, “Hi Everybody, Homer here. Never imagined I’d find myself responsible for mom’s IG account, but here we are.” He added, “First things first, from August to now, the amount of love, care and support shown by those on social media and IRL has been overwhelming and blessedly received – thank you.”
Homer further shared, “One day at a time is working for me as I’m sure the healing journey will be a long one. Your good thoughts and well wishes will continue to comfort me on my path.” He then went on to explain that, given he’s posting on his mom’s account, he has “a responsibility to share with her community what she was working on and how excited she would have been to tell you herself.”
Anne Heche added, “My mom had a completed manuscript for a second book at the time of her passing. The book is the product of mom’s further efforts to share her story and to help others where she could.” Homer continues, “Call Me Anne is the result and I know she was excited to share with the world. So, mom, here I am sharing it with the community you created, may it flourish and take on a life of it’s own, as you would have wanted.”
Homer Laffoon was appointed as administrator and personal representative of his late mother’s estate in late November. For the unversed, Anne Heche was declared brain dead, the definition of death according to California law, on August 12, one week after she was involved in a fiery car crash in Los Angeles. She was 53.
