Suzanne Somers, the beloved actress who starred in Three’s Company and Step by Step, passed away last year after a long battle with cancer. She was 74 years old and left behind a legacy of laughter and love.
But her husband of almost 50 years, Alan Hamel, believes that she is not really gone. In fact, he claims that she visited him from the ‘other side’ by way of a series of eerie events that occurred in their home following her death.
Hamel shared his wondrous experience in an interview with the website Page Six, where he recalled how three particularly curious moments unfolded over the course of one day.
The weirdness began, he said, when a hummingbird managed to get into their house and flew around the residence until it finally landed on a picture of him and his wife. “It was like she was saying, ‘I’m here, I’m here,'” he said.
But that was just the start of what he later concluded was a message from his departed wife. According to Hamel, the fireplace in their home then suddenly “started all by itself,” which was then followed by an even stranger turn of events when “some music came on by Suzanne’s favorite composer.”
The trio of curious moments understandably had a profound effect on him as, he declared, “I’m a believer now that there is an afterlife. I’m convinced of it.” He went on to theorize that although “we discard our bodies” at the moment of death, “the soul must go somewhere and do something.”
Hamel’s story is not unique. Many people who have lost their loved ones report having signs or synchronicities that make them feel connected to them beyond the physical realm.
Some believe that these are messages from the spirit world, while others see them as coincidences or wishful thinking.
