The public is invited to pay their respects to Beth Chapman, who passed away this week after battling cancer.
Duane “Dog” Chapman, the well-known bounty hunter and Beth’s husband, announced plans to celebrate her life in both Colorado and Hawaii, where she called home.
“In her own words, she said,” I love Hawaii the most, “so we’re mailing her with Aloha in true Hawaiian style,” Chapman wrote on Friday.
A meeting will take place on Saturday June 29th at Fort DeRussy Beach in Waikiki. The gathering will include “Hawaiian ʻOli, prayer, followed by a paddle with family and friends”.
People wishing to participate are asked to bring ocean-friendly flowers (without strings).
Chapman also announced that people were welcome to bring flowers for a memorial outside their home in Hawaii.
Detailed plans for a memorial service in Colorado are still in the works, the family says.
Chapman was diagnosed with throat cancer in September 2017. A tumor was removed and she was declared cancer free. In November 2018, she was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
