It’s so hard to say goodbye…
Dog the Bounty Hunter and the rest of the reality TV star’s family, friends, and loved ones — along with several thousand fans of the show — said goodbye to Beth Chapman one last time on Saturday afternoon during a final memorial service in Aurora, Colorado.
The ceremony, which took place at Heritage Christian Center in the Denver suburb, was live-streamed and recorded in full by WGN America on Saturday afternoon; if you missed it when it went live, you can watch the full video of the service on the network’s Facebook page by clicking HERE.
During the ceremony, Dog and his family sat in vigil on stage and took turns paying tribute to Beth, who died in a Hawaii hospital several weeks ago after valiantly fighting cancer for several years. She had been placed in a medically induced coma at the time but, despite beating cancer back several years ago, she unfortunately succumbed to the disease on the island on June 26.
At one point during the vigil, the bounty hunter and reality TV star told fans (below):
“I can’t believe she’s gone. She was so gorgeous. People would say that and she wouldn’t never believe it, but I told her all the time she is gorgeous, she was so pretty.”
The entire memorial service was like that, too, with thousands of fans in attendance who were able to pay their respects for Beth’s life and celebrate her along with Dog and the family. Emotions were high, of course, but it was a powerful event, lasting about two-and-a-half hours in total.
Earlier in the week, Dog had spoken up more about his late wife, acknowledging that Beth knew cancer’s grip was a possibility for several years in advance. And, he revealed, she kept making sure she was the only one for the reality TV head honcho, telling Dog when she was still alive (below):
“For two to three years, she knew this might happen. So she would say, ‘Who is going to sit next to you?’ And I said, ‘No one.’ She said, ‘Big Daddy, you better not let another girl take my place.’ I said, ‘I won’t.’”
Awww… these two were seriously made for each other, and they complemented each other perfectly — we can’t even imagine one without the other!
WGN, which was set to host Dog & Beth’s newest reality TV venture, created their own touching tribute video for the reality TV momma, too, in addition to live-streaming the entire service on Saturday. You can watch that brand-new tribute video here (below):
