Anne Heche, who died last August after a fatal car accident, was laid to rest in an intimate family service on Mother’s Day, nine months after her passing.

While Heche was previously cremated after her untimely death at 53, her family gathered to place her ashes in their final resting place on Sunday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery Cathedral Mausoleum.

Her two sons 21-year-old Homer and 14-year-old Atlas – were also present at the small ceremony along with their fathers, Coley Laffoon and James Tupper.

Heche’s son, Homer, had previously spoken about why they have selected the Hollywood Forever Cemetery Cathedral Mausoleum as their mother’s final resting place.
