Although it has been a year since the world said goodbye to Beth Chapman, it seems like just yesterday for her loved ones and family.

Over the weekend, her daughter, Bonnie, and stepdaughter, Lyssa, took to social media to pay emotional tributes to the Chapman family's late matriarch. Bonnie, who had a tight bond with her mom, took to her Twitter page to share screenshots of a note where she poured her heart out.

Duane "Dog" Chapman, alongside close friends and family members, held a private ceremony in honor of Beth's first death anniversary. The ceremony was held at the South Platte River in Deckers, Colorado.

She began the emotional message by noting that it has been a year without her mother's "smile, laugh, and voice." The 21-year-old confessed that although she has tried to be strong for the rest of the family, she breaks down sometimes and cries uncontrollably.

Describing her late mother as "the rock" in her life, Bonnie confessed that she had imagined how her 21st birthday would go without her mom's wholesome presence. Expressing her pain, she wrote:

"I've lost a huge part of me, I don't like to admit it. I feel like I've been so translucent, but to everyone else, my feelings are fogged. I'm broken, lost, and completely closed off."

The makeup artist recalled the day Beth passed away, and how she called her boyfriend to cry when her mom took her last breath. She also pointed out how other people's discussions about their moms make her heart squeeze as she wishes she could still do Beth's makeup. Bonnie ended the lengthy tribute on a positive note, thankful that her mom is no longer in pain. She wrote:

"You can breathe, you can laugh; I wish you were here but I know you're at peace. I'm thankful for every moment we had together."

Stepdaughter Lyssa also took to her Instagram to share a slideshow of Beth's heartwarming photos, which lasted for more than a minute. The Sun notes that Duane "Dog" Chapman, alongside close friends and family members held a private ceremony in honor of Beth's first death anniversary.

According to the publication, the ceremony was held at the South Platte River in Deckers, Colorado― a favorite spot of Beth's. To celebrate his late wife, the bounty hunter filled one of her inflatable rafts with her favorite flowers and precious items before letting it float down the river freely.

Joined by his daughter Bonnie and fiance Francie Frane, Duane confessed in his speech he couldn't believe his Beth was "never coming home." He also paid tribute to his fiance for helping him cope with the pain.

The celebration of life comes after the Daily Mail reported that Bonnie urged fans to let her father "live in peace" after his surprise engagement to Francie 10 months after Beth's demise.

She explained that although Duane still "very much" loves her late mom, he deserves to be happy and be with Francie.
