In a statement given to PEOPLE, he adds, "My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom.
"I am left with a profound, indescribable grief following six days of nearly unimaginable emotional ups and downs.
I'm hoping my mom is no longer in pain and is starting to experience what I like to think of as her eternal freedom."
Homer then expresses his gratitude to everyone who has sent them affection.
Thousands of my friends, family, and fans reached out to me throughout those six days, he continued.
I'm appreciative of their support as well as that of my stepmother Alexi and father Coley, who continue to be my pillars of strength at this difficult time.
I love you, Mom, rest in peace," he continued.
Son Homer and son Atlas, 13 years old, were shared by Heche and her ex-boyfriend Coley Laffoon.
