Duane “Dog” Chapman, known for his reality television show Dog the Bounty Hunter, and his family are still mourning the loss of Beth Chapman.

Beth died on June 26, 2019, after battling cancer. Her family was left reeling, and they’re still struggling to cope with the loss.

On Saturday, July 13, 2019, Beth’s friends and family gathered for a memorial. During the emotional service, Duane gave a touching eulogy for his wife. Duane and Beth’s children, Bonnie and Garry, also gave emotional speeches. They all held back tears as they spoke about what an incredible woman their mother was.

During his eulogy, Duane broke down. “I cannot believe that she’s gone,” he said through tears.

“This is not possible; I want to wake up from a dream.”

The memorial service, which was open to the public, was absolutely packed. The service was also streamed online, and more than 1 million people have watched it.

Although Beth is no longer with us, we haven’t seen the last of her on television. Later this year, she’ll appear alongside her husband on the upcoming WGN reality show, Dog’s Most Wanted. According to Duane, Beth really wanted the show to go on, even if she died before it aired.
