Alan Hamel, the widower of the late actress from "Three's Company," recently shared with People magazine that his wife was buried wearing a pair of hiking boots that were significant to both of them.
The actress passed away on October 15 at the age of 76 following an extended fight with breast cancer. Hamel revealed the sentimental story behind the boots she wore in her final resting place.
"Suzanne never really had boots designed for hiking on the rocks, so I ordered the Timberland boots," Hamel remembered. "[I] made my gift personal by drawing on them in a few words that represented our life to some degree and made them very personal to Suzanne."
Hamel, who had been married to Somers for 46 years, remarked that his late wife owned "every Manolo Blahnik ever made." Yet, in his conversation with the publication, he explained that having her "wearing [Manolo Blahniks] for her final trip" would "have been predictable but not very personal."
"Every time she put on the Timberlands, she said, ‘I am wearing you, and my boots will keep me safe,'" Hamel recalled.
The TV host shared that he and Somers resided near mountains in Malibu and Palm Springs for five decades, and the "Step by Step" star required the boots as part of their "early morning routine."
The native of Canada described that their routine "always included hiking to the top of one of the mountains, where there was a creek and a large flat rock in the middle of the creek."
"By the time we got there, which was about a two-hour hike, the rock had been warmed by the morning sun," Hamel said.
Hamel continued, "We would have our lunch on the rock and then take a one-hour nap on the rock and then hike back down and go to work."
When Somers passed away, her representative affirmed that her family "was gathered to celebrate her 77th birthday on October 16th."
"Instead, they will celebrate her extraordinary life, and want to thank her millions of fans and followers who loved her dearly," Somers' representative said. "A private family burial will take place this week, with a memorial to follow next month."
"We actually toasted last night," Hamel said to People magazine at the time. "We had, I think, 12 of us here, and all toasted Suzanne. I'm positive we'll do something today. I don't know what it will be, but it will involve a lot of cake, because Suzanne was crazy for cake."
Somers passed away in "residence hospice" at her Palm Springs home and was laid to rest at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City, California, as per her death certificate.
