Dog the Bounty Hunter's daughter Lyssa shares heartbreaking message after stepmother Beth's memorial
Duane 'Dog The Bounty Hunter' Chapman, 66, and the rest of Beth's family celebrated her life and legacy on June 30
Lyssa Chapman was still "in disbelief" that her stepmother Beth Chapman was really gone, even a day after mourners paid tribute to the American bounty hunter at her memorial service in Hawaii.
As Duane “Dog The Bounty Hunter” Chapman, 66, and the rest of Beth's family celebrated her life and legacy, Lyssa, 32, took to social media on June 30 to mourn her loss, HollywoodLife reports.
“Someone wake me up from this awful dream,” she wrote.
Well-wishers had gathered the previous day for a traditional Hawaiian service on Fort DeRussy Beach in Waikiki.
However, Lyssa was still reeling under the loss as she shared a picture of her father at the memorial.
“I have no words,” she added alongside the photograph. ”Still in disbelief. Pray for our family, as we lost our strongest member.”
Beth and Duane's daughter Bonnie Chapman, 20, also shared an emotional message after her mother's funeral service.
“Thank you everyone who came today,” she wrote on Instagram. “[Beth would have] love(d) the ceremony and the flowers everyone brought. Thank you for joining us on this emotional ride.”
Meanwhile, Dog fulfilled his wife's wishes with a traditional Hawaiian funeral after she made him promise to do her memorial "right."
Dog recalled during the service the time he buried his mother in Hilo, Hawaii, and how a local tribesman from Molokai declared him an official Hawaiian since his mother “was part of the land, the sea, the sky, and the rain…"
"Now, Beth is going to be placed here too. She got there before I did. my island,” he said.
“And she said ‘please, Hawaiian style Duane Dog Chapman,’ — I tried to get her to call me Dog for so many years — she said, please do this right. She loved Hawaii and she loved the people,” he added.
Beth's service ended with close friends and family paddling out into the sea in an outrigger canoe to say goodbye to her for the last time.
While battling cancer, Beth and Lyssa were embroiled in a heated feud.
Fortunately, the two hashed out their differences before the reality star’s untimely demise.
The pair reportedly "got back to a place where they needed to be and they reconnected with their faith," a source told HollywoodLife, “and things ended up on great terms.”
The source also added Lyssa is “very grateful that she had a chance to make peace with Beth before she passed away."
