Alan Hamel, the widower of famed actress Suzanne Somers, has offered an intimate insight into the bewildering series of events transpiring within their Palm Springs home since her death. Somers, famously known for her role in the hit sitcom “Three’s Company”, died last year at the age of 76 after a twenty-year battle with cancer. Hamel, her husband of 50 years, has since found himself grappling with not only his grief but a series of peculiar occurrences that has resulted in him considering the possibility of an afterlife.
In an exclusive interview with Page Six, Hamel recounted the enigmatic happenings that unfolded in their home, “Three things happened the same day, that were very strange.” The first of those incidents involved a hummingbird which flew into their house and made a navigation around the kitchen, living room, and dining room. As Hamel relayed the narrative, the bird even hovered in front of a framed picture of the pair and descended to rest on it for a moment, staying long enough for Hamel to capture a picture of the moment before it took off.
Not only did this unexpected guest stir feelings of bewilderment, but the ensuing incident pushed Hamel further into the realm of the inexplicable. He revealed that “the fireplace started all by itself,” and a piece of music by one of Somers’ favorite composers began to play, a composer who, according to Hamel, is relatively unknown. Such peculiar occurrences have prompted Hamel to question the nature and existence of an afterlife.
Yet, these weren’t the only factors contributing to his newfound belief. Hamel shared an intimate detail, stating he still feels his wife beside him in bed just before slumber claims him. He verbalized his burgeoning belief, saying, “I’m convinced of it … I think there’s something we don’t understand… I think there’s a plane somewhere after we discard our bodies. We still have our soul. I think our soul is energy. The soul must go somewhere and do something.”
This profound sentiment isn’t Hamel’s alone. The capitalized love that was embedded in their close-knit family seems to have woven threads of nostalgia and metaphysical connections. Hamel disclosed, “The time when I’m with my family and I have one of my moments when I have to leave, I go into the bedroom…I feel her presence. Once I interact with her presence, I go back and interact with the family. Her grandkids, one by one, have told me the same thing.”
The strange phenomena and the placing confidence in an afterlife have not only attested to Hamel’s struggle with his grief, but they have also aided him. He expressed his hope that “it’s all true” as these odd experiences have seemingly cushioned the blow of his loss, making “the grieving process a lot easier.” He ended his revealing interview with a hopeful note, musing, “If it is, we’ll be reunited.”
In an astounding tale that defies conventional borders of belief and disbelief, Alan Hamel navigates the world post the death of his beloved wife, Suzanne Somers. His experiences are signifying to him the existence of an afterlife, conduits of energies that we do not fully comprehend yet. And as we witness these profound revelations, we are reminded of the boundless power of love – to transcend barriers, survive our mortal forms, and give us the strength to hope, even in the face of insurmountable grief.
