'Tequila & Tributes' for Suzanne Somers: Family, friends honor 'Three's Company' actor in bittersweet event celebrating star's life

PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA: Family and friends of the late Suzanne Somers came together in Palm Springs, to pay their respects and celebrate the life of the iconic 'Three's Company' star who succumbed to cancer on October 15 at the age of 76.

The memorial, aptly themed "Tequila & Tributes," was a reflection of Somers' vivacious spirit and her love for lively gatherings on Thursday, November 30.

However, the atmosphere was tinged with a somber undertone. Guests, dressed in "colorful cocktail attire with sparkles and feathers in true Suzanne fashion," paid tribute to a woman who had left an indelible mark on their hearts.

Suzanne, a resilient soul who battled cancer multiple times in her life, embraced each day with gratitude. Diagnosed with breast cancer in her 50s, she revealed in a 2020 interview that her longevity was a testament to a healthy lifestyle. She passed away just one day before her 77th birthday, leaving behind a legacy of love and joy.

Suzanne Somers' husband mourns her loss

Suzanne's husband of over 45 years, Alan Hamel, played a central role in the emotional ceremony. A close friend shared the significance of Suzanne's unconventional choice of footwear in her final resting place—Timberland boots personalized by Hamel himself.

These boots, adorned with messages like "In Love Forever" and "We Are One," spoke volumes about the couple's shared love for hiking and the mountains they cherished.

The memorial program hailed Somers as "Our brightest star" and featured an illustration crafted by her daughter Leslie Hamel.

The program encapsulated Suzanne's philosophy with a quote that resonated throughout the ceremony, "It’s not who you are. It’s not what you have. It’s not what you do. It’s only about who you love and who loves you . . . and I love you."

'Unforgettable' evening of tributes pour in for Suzanne Somers

The evening unfolded with an hour-long program, weaving together videos of Suzanne's performances, heartfelt toasts from her family, career montages, and a moving performance by her granddaughter Daisy.

Tables adorned with Suzanne's signature pink roses created an ambiance of warmth and nostalgia, while guests were gifted holiday candles in her favorite scent, Floating Gardenia, along with bracelets bearing a quote from the star.

The atmosphere was filled with reminiscences, laughter, and a touch of sadness. Suzanne's son, Bruce, served as the emcee, guiding the audience through a journey of memories.

He spoke tenderly about his mother's unique ability to make everyone feel cherished, "When my mother talked to you, she made you feel like a million bucks. Her secret power was the ability to make you feel loved."
