In the wake of the recent passing of the beloved actress Suzanne Somers, her husband Alan Hamel and son Bruce Somers shared poignant reflections on her extraordinary life. The duo recently spoke with our team to offer exclusive insights into Suzanne’s final days and the profound impact she had on their lives.
Alan, 87, expressed gratitude for the unwavering support of his family during this challenging time. “I am surrounded by my loved ones, ensuring I never feel alone. Although the pain is overwhelming, the love and togetherness bring solace,” he shared. “Losing Suzanne feels like losing a part of myself. It’s a journey of fluctuating emotions, a process of grieving and finding strength again.”
Bruce, 57, echoed the sentiment, acknowledging the flood of love and support from people worldwide. “Yesterday, she was simply mom to us, and today, the world remembers her as Suzanne Somers, the cherished icon. Her impact on countless lives is truly remarkable,” Bruce reflected. “We are grateful for every life she touched.”
Suzanne, best known for her iconic roles in ‘Three’s Company’ and ‘Step by Step,’ passed away peacefully at 5 a.m. on Sunday, just a day before her 77th birthday. Alan recounted the final moments, where, despite her weakened state, Suzanne found a way to communicate her love. “In her last days, she was unresponsive, but when I kissed her, she kissed me back. I knew she could hear me,” he recalled. “I spoke to her for hours, hoping she could hear my words, and I believe she did.”
Alan admitted that they had anticipated this day, but he never imagined it would be Suzanne who would go first. “We always thought it would be me,” he mused. “Our bond was profound, with 42 years of inseparable togetherness. Bruce referred to it as ‘functionally co-dependent,’ a beautiful intertwining of souls.”
Bruce added, “My mother’s strength was unparalleled. Alan shielded her from the public eye, allowing her to thrive in the limelight she adored.”
Suzanne had battled cancer for over 23 years, surviving multiple forms of the disease. “She fought relentlessly, employing various healthcare approaches and giving it her all,” Alan shared. Bruce emphasized that her decline was swift despite her resilience in the face of pain.
In her own words, Suzanne acknowledged her ongoing battle with cancer, crediting her enduring relationship with Alan and her family for providing her with strength and support. Her indomitable spirit was evident as she continued to fight the disease, emphasizing her determination to prevail against the odds.
Suzanne Somers will be remembered not only for her iconic contributions to the entertainment industry but also for her unwavering resilience in the face of adversity, serving as an inspiration to many battling similar health challenges.
