The gang’s (almost) all here. In the weeks since the late beloved reality TV star Beth Chapman passed away, her family is doing her best to honor her memory. Now, ahead of Beth’s second memorial service in her home state of Colorado, the whole Chapman family reunited and Lyssa Chapman captured the sweet family moment in a snap on Instagram.
“FAM=BAM ❤️ #TheBandIsBackTogether #MoreFamilyComing,” Lyssa, 32, wrote in the caption of the big group photo. Beth’s widower, Duane “Dog” Chapman, stood in the center of the photo with daughter-in-law Jamie Pilar Chapman, daughters Cecily Chapman, Bonnie Jo Chapman, and sons Leland Chapman and Garry Chapman.
Fans flooded the comments, continuing to share their condolences for the Chapmans after they suffered such a devastating loss. “I truly hope and pray y’all are finding peace in the memories…I don’t know if I will ever get used to seeing your dad without Beth by his side..my heart aches for him. Celebrate her life BIG tomorrow wish I was able to be there! ❤️🙏,” one fan wrote, and another commented, “My heart aches for your family. I lost my mom 2 1/2 years ago. Stick together as a family as you always have. Beth was a beautiful woman 🙏🏼.”
On June 26, 2019, Beth Chapman lost her battle with cancer at 51 years old. She was best known for starring alongside Dog, 66, on the long-running A&E reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter, the CMT spinoff Dog and Beth: On the Hunt and most recently, Dog’s Most Wanted.
The family previously held a beautiful, traditional Hawaiian memorial service in Waikiki, Hawaii on Saturday, June 29, and they are holding a second service in Colorado on Saturday, July 13.
Ahead of the second service, Dog opened up about the pain of losing Beth in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, and he revealed how Beth prepared him to live without her. “For two to three years, she knew this might happen,” Dog said. “So she would say, ‘Who is going to sit next to you?’ And I said, ‘No one’ … ‘Big Daddy, you better not let another girl take my place.’ I said, ‘I won’t.’”
