It's been almost a year since Duane 'Dog' Chapman's wife Beth passed away and the reality star is planning a special remembrance event.
Tagging it #fortheloveofbeth, the event will take place on June 26th, hosted by their daughter Cecily. Family and fans have been invited to meet at Waimanalo beach at 5.30 pm.
Beth Chapman who starred in the reality series "Dog the Bounty Hunter" with her husband, passed away last year after suffering from throat cancer.
After a spokesperson for the family made the announcement, Dog took to his social media to share the news with their fans, writing,
"It's 5.32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head Mountain. Only today she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.
Born in Denver, Beth was, at the time, the youngest woman to receive a bail license. She worked in the bail bond business for over 30 years.
However, in 2017, they announced that she had been diagnosed with stage two throat cancer. After treatment, they revealed that she was cancer-free.
Dog Revealed that he had not been prepared to lose his wife.
Unfortunately, last year, the cancer returned and spread to her lungs, and the pair announced that they were exploring alternative treatments to help her fight the disease.
However, she soon lost the battle, and on June 26th, she passed away. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dog Revealed that he had not been prepared to lose his wife, adding,
"You can't prepare. There is no way. I did not know that this was going to happen that day...there is no another Beth. There'll never be another Beth. There ain't a girl built like another Beth."
In the months after his wife died, Dog admitted that his children had been struggling with the loss, sharing that they did not know what to do with themselves.
The bounty hunter revealed that he had apologized to his children, telling that he was sorry that he was not the one that had died first.
Beth and Dog had been married since 2006 and raised a blended family with 12 children. The family split their time between their homes in Hawaii and Colorado.
For the planned memorial, Chapman has asked fans who are not in Hawaii to take a hike or walk in nature and take a picture in honor of his late wife.
