Her sons, Homer Lafoon and Atlas Tupper, were present at the ceremony, a representative for the cemetery told People.

The ceremony was “small, private and lovely,” the representative told the magazine.

Heche’s remains were placed in the cemetery’s Cathedral Mausoleum, the Times reported. She joins Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Rudolph Valentino, Mel Blanc, Marion Davies and Cecil B. DeMille as celebrities whose remains are at the cemetery, according to the newspaper.

A representative for Heche said her crypt is next to Rooney’s and across from those of musicians Chris Cornell and Johnny Ramone, the Times reported.

“Mother, actress, writer, director, creator, believer,” the inscription on her plaque reads. “Live in love.”

According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner, Heche died from smoke inhalation and thermal injuries after she crashed into a home on Aug. 5, 2022.

Her manner of death was listed as an accident and also noted that a “sternal fracture due to blunt trauma” was another “significant condition” from the car crash, People reported.
