Suzanne Somers died Sunday, one day shy of her 77th birthday.
Her longtime husband, Alan Hamel, spoke to NBC News on Monday and said that he knew the end was near in the days leading up to her death.
“We were in bed together and her breathing was erratic, and I had been talking to her for hours,” Hamel, 87, said. “There was no response except when I kissed her, she responded, and then around 5 o’clock in the morning, she was gone.”
Although her cancer had returned in July, Hamel said that just three days before she died — after spending six weeks with specialists in Chicago — she seemed to be doing better.
“She was eating and was, you know, taking her medicine,” he said.
But he says a few days after they had returned home, things took a turn.
