Popular Celebrities We Lost In 2019
HGTV star Suzanne Whang passed away on September after a 13-year battle with breast cancer. She served as the on-camera host and narrator for House Hunters from 1999 to 2008. She also hosted the spinoff series House Hunters International, from 2006 to 2008. In summary, she hosted more than 400 episodes, according to an HGTV representative.
Her partner, Jeff Vezain, shared on her Facebook page about saddening news to her fans. “A lifetime of love, adventure, humor and bliss now lives in our memories. On Tuesday evening around 7:20pm, Suzanne breathed her last breath here at home, as I knelt beside her and caressed her,” he said. “For thirteen years she confronted cancer with courage, humor, determination and optimism. She was immensely encouraged by the love of her family, friends and those she had yet to meet. Your kind, loving messages always lifted her spirits. I know she would prefer that her life be celebrated, as opposed to her passing mourned,” he continued. “But I also know how vehemently she disagreed with anyone being told, “Don’t cry.” So…cry if you will. I’ve been crying a LOT! And laughing…and everything in between. It’s all part of life, but laughter was a staple of our dynamic.”
Vezain added: “Her audacious sense of humor blessed many, shocked a few, but allowed us to laugh in the face of adversity. She was an amazing daughter, sister, friend, mentor and advocate. As I, her family and her closest friends process her transition, we ask for your prayers and loving thoughts. We have appreciated all of the kind words and memories shared on her Facebook page. It has brought much comfort.”
“As I say good bye to a soul who was more than a true love, but also a best friend and an intellectual and spiritual book-end, know that we may not be able to respond to queries, but will try to keep you updated. Thank you,” he concluded.
