Duane “Dog” Chapman’s daughter Lyssa Chapman paid a heartfelt tribute to her late sister, Barbara Katy Chapman, on social media. Barbara was killed in a car accident near her home in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Lyssa took to Instagram to share a sweet picture in the memory of her beloved sister Barbara.
“Dear BK, The pictures I have are blurry, but my memories of you are sharp and clear. I know you’re up there, down here, spread everywhere. Filling the heavens and the earth with your beautiful spirit,” Lyssa wrote.
She went on to appreciate how her sister’s presence had affected her life in a good way.
“I selfishly wish you were still flesh and blood. That we could talk about Abbie and Travis getting so big. Helping me plan Abbie’s graduation. Telling me what I’m doing wrong and bossing me around like you always did. I love and miss you every day. Please wrap your angel wings around me and the kids today and help us get thru this life, awaiting the time our souls meet again. Until then, I’ll see you in my dreams sissy,” she concluded the emotional post.
Barbara died just the night before Dog’s wedding to Beth Smith, his fifth wife, in Hawaii. According to Alaska state troopers, Barbara was riding a stolen SUV with a friend when it went off the street, hit some trees as it rolled, and landed upside down.
Lyssa’s post garnered hundreds of likes on Instagram as fans expressed their sympathies and shared their own stories of loss in the comments section.
Recently, Lyssa shared a picture of herself kissing her fiancée Leiana on the beach. The couple got engaged in December 2017. She has an 11-year-old daughter, Madalynn, from her previous marriage with Bo Galanti.
Lyssa’s sister Bonnie also came out as Pansexual through social media, revealing that she falls in love with people’s personalities rather than gender.
