“In the wake of Anne’s passing, I just wanted to say a few things,” the real estate broker, 48, recently began in an Instagram video. “One, I loved her and I miss her, and I’m always going to. Two, Homer is OK. He’s grieving, of course, and it’s rough — it’s really rough, as probably anybody can imagine. But he’s surrounded by family and he’s strong and he’s gonna be OK.”

The Ohio native went on to thank everyone who checked in on him and Homer, 20, following the accident that led to Heche’s death. “It’s hard for me, it’s hard for my family, it’s really hard for Homer,” he continued. “But we got each other and we have a lot of support, and we’re gonna be OK.”

The Cedar Rapids star and Laffoon began dating in 2000 following Heche’s split from Ellen DeGeneres. After tying the knot in September 2001, the duo welcomed Homer in March 2002. Laffoon filed for divorce in February 2007, and the split was finalized two years later.

“Goodbye, Anne,” Laffoon continued in his video. “I love you, thank you. Thank you for all the good times. There were so many. See you on the other side, and in the meantime, I got our son. He’ll be fine.”
