Suzanne Somers’ husband, Alan Hamel, lovingly surprised her with a heartfelt early birthday present shortly before her passing. In this exclusive article, we’ll explore the touching gesture and celebrate the life of this beloved actress.
A Loving Gesture: The Heartfelt Gift
An insider close to the couple shared with us that Alan Hamel presented the iconic “Three’s Company” star with a handwritten love poem delicately wrapped in her favorite pink peonies. It was a touching and sentimental token of his deep affection for her.
A Sad Farewell
Somers passed away one day prior to what would have been her 77th birthday, after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. She died peacefully in her sleep, and it is reported that she had a chance to read the poem before her final slumber.
The Poem that Touched Hearts
The romantic poem, written by Hamel, expressed profound feelings of love and admiration for his wife, Suzanne Somers. The poem contained lines that encapsulated their unique bond. In one part, it reads: “What brand of love do I feel for my wife Suzanne? … The closest version in words isn’t even close. It’s not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction. Unconditional love does not do it. I’ll take a bullet for you doesn’t do it. I weep when I think about my feelings for you.”
In Search of Words
The poem continues with Hamel acknowledging the inadequacy of words in capturing the depth of his emotions. He expressed, “There are no words. There are no actions. No promises. No declarations. Even the green-shaded scholars of the Oxford University Press have spent 150 years and still have failed to come up with that one word. So I will call it, ‘us,’ uniquely, magically, indescribably wonderful ‘us.'”
A Comforting Presence
A close friend of Suzanne Somers revealed that her beloved husband, Alan Hamel, was by her side when she peacefully passed away. She was in the comfort of her new ‘all green home’ in Palm Springs, and her loving husband was there to support her.
A Life Remembered
R. Couri Hay, the late actress’ longtime publicist, confirmed her passing and shared some heartwarming details about her final moments. “Suzanne Somers passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours of Oct. 15. She survived an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years,” he said in a statement. “Suzanne was surrounded by her loving husband, Alan [Hamel], her son, Bruce, and her immediate family.”
Celebrating Her Life
Hay further revealed that, in her honor, family and friends planned to gather on what would have been her birthday. Instead, they decided to celebrate her extraordinary life and express their gratitude to the millions of fans and followers who cherished her deeply. A private family burial is scheduled for later this week, with a memorial service to follow next month.
A Lasting Love
Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel’s love story began in 1969 on the short-lived competition show “Anniversary Game.” They eventually tied the knot in 1977 and shared a beautiful journey together for nearly five decades. Although they had children from previous marriages, their love created a unique and enduring bond.
As we remember Suzanne Somers’ life and the love she shared with her husband Alan Hamel, her legacy lives on in the hearts of her family, friends, and devoted fans.
