October 29th, 2019 marks what would have been Beth Chapman’s 52nd birthday. Instead of being able to celebrate with her this year, her grief-stricken family is mourning her passing.
Earlier this week, Duane “Dog” Chapman and Beth Chapman’s youngest daughter, Bonnie, shared some sweet family moments on social media with a message to her mom expressing the deep sense of loss she’s feeling – especially on a day like this.
“I miss you everyday. Your birthday is coming up, wish I could celebrate with you one last time. Thank you for being there for my graduation, now I’m so thankful I have that moment with you,” Bonnie shared on Instagram.
On top of the family matriarch’s passing, the family has endured medical problems, their store was burglarized, and Dog was almost the victim of a $400K scam.
Both Dog and Bonnie were hospitalized in the months since Beth’s passing. Dog was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism and Bonnie endured a severe bout of sciatica. It has been a rough year, to say the least.
In a post honoring his late wife’s birthday, Dog mourned her without even saying a single word. He has already said that the grieving process has taken a heavy toll on him, and we can imagine it’s hard to find the right words to say.

Sharing a photo that Beth originally posted expressing her immense love for Dog, he tweeted it out early evening on her 52nd birthday and quickly, fans took to the social network in support of him.
