The post caption read, "For those of you that don’t know, A Beth Chapman Memorial Scholarship non-profit was established in her honor' the post from Robinson read. 'This scholarship is designated for those wanting to complete their GED/HiSet test. http://www.mrsdog.org Please share. ❤️ #ThisOnesForBeth #DogsMostWantedSeason2". 

Earlier this week, Duane had spoken to People magazine and said that this was the first year that he was tasked with cooking the Turkey. While discussing his first steps into cooking the feast, he shared jokingly, "I hope there is a guide on Youtube. Several family members are coming for the meal and my children are all freaked out because I’m cooking". 

"The daughters will be bringing other dishes to go with the turkey. We always realize what the day of Thanksgiving means, so we all talk about the main thing we are thankful for," he revealed. He also spoke about a family tradition where they mark the festivities with an award. The award is called the Butthole of the Turkey award and "it goes to the most difficult child of that previous year", he shared. 

Duane has ten children. He shares Bonnie and Garry with his late wife Beth and had also adopted her daughter Cecily. From his first, second, and third marriages, he has Duane and Leland, Wesley and James, and Barbara, Tucker, and Lyssa. The reality TV star was left shattered and heartbroken after Beth died in June after waging a two-year battle with throat cancer.
