Beth Chapman’s husband, Duane, celebrated her life by sharing his late wife’s talent and positive energy in a never-before-seen video of her belting out to Bruno Mars.
Despite her tragic passing, Duane “Dog” Chapman decided to celebrate Beth Chapman’s happiest days on earth, which he shared on his Twitter account on Thursday. The 66-year-old reality star wrote:
“People have asked me.. What is something fans do not know about Beth… Here you go.”
LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST
The video captured an enthusiastic and energized Beth, jamming to Bruno Mars’ “Perm” while dancing in an almost empty restaurant. Full of life and happiness, the Chapman matriarch radiated positivity among her family, friends, and fans, despite battling cancer.
“She wanted to live so bad, and she fought so long, and the reason she fought, she liked life, but she wanted to show people how to beat it and what to do when it got her,” Chapman told reporters on Wednesday.
The “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star also revealed one of his late wife’s last few words which included having a strong faith and not accepting defeat. He said:
“There’s things you go through when you’re dying, like steps like you do when you lose someone, right? You get mad at them, and then you go through all these steps. Well, the last step when you’re dying is to accept it; and she said to me the other day: ‘Honey, that last step, I ain’t taking.’”
According to a source who got in touch with Us Weekly, Beth will be having two memorial services -- in Hawaii and Colorado, both of which are places dear to her heart. She originally came from Colorado before moving to Hawaii with her husband.
The outlet also reported that Beth wished to be cremated before her demise, and so her family will fulfill her final wish, although the details are yet to be made public.
