In the video Duane "Dog" Chapman gave a speech in front of his family and friends, he remembered that Beth considered the culture and traditions of Hawaii very important. That is why these tributes are made.
Lyssa said they are preparing to perform two memorial services, one at home, in Hawaii and one on the continent, in Colorado.

A little over two years ago, Beth surprised all her fans by recognizing that she had been diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer. She received intense treatment and was then able to announce that she was in remission and free of cancer.
In November 2018, unfortunately, she shared on her Instagram that cancer had returned. Although she turned to the doctors, they put her in a deep induced coma to help her recover in ICU from Queen's Medical Center in Hawaii, but she never woke up.
Before her death, Beth Chapman recorded all the scenes of the new season of her show with her husband Duane, which will air next year.
It was also known that she and her stepdaughter Lyssa managed to overcome their differences and during these last days they were able to share what they are, a family that is not perfect but is there for each other, especially at times like these.
