This yuletide is a season classified by love, sharing, and ultimately spending time with loved ones. The "Dog the Bounty Hunter" star and his family bonded this Christmas just like every other family.

However, there was a missing piece in the puzzle, as the annual family picture and bonding time didn't feature his late wife, Beth Chapman.

Beth Chapman died a few months ago after her battle with cancer, and although the Chapman family grieved her passing, they still sought to spend the holiday season as one.

An Instagram post featuring the pack read:

"Merry Christmas, it's unfermented wine."

While the family decided to be cheerful at the end of the year, this doesn't mean that they have forgotten all about Beth and her achievements.

On Christmas day, her stepdaughter Lyssa Chapman took to the 'gram to celebrate her. She uploaded a photo of the deceased clad in a fur hat, while she wore a contagious smile while looking at the camera.

The caption revealed that although Beth is out of sight, she'll never be out of mind, as she is forever remembered. Lyssa also wished her stepmother a "Merry Christmas."

66-year-old Duane holds his wife's memory dear to his heart, and he stated in an interview that the family would celebrate the holiday the way she likes it. Duane Chapman said:

"Beth was old style, old fashioned. So you know that means the tree and the presents. All the stockings hung up, so I'm trying to keep that tradition. I've got it all decorated."

Apart from talking about his wife's rituals, he never misses the chance to show how much he thinks about her. Before Christmas, the bounty hunter posted a throwback photo that featured Beth, himself, and the kids as they posed in front of a blazing fire.

For Duane, losing his wife was excruciatingly painful, and he's talked about how tumultuous living without her was after she died. Even though it seems Chapman is getting past that stage, something he would never leave behind is a memory of her.
