A day after the late reality star and wife of Dog the Bounty Hunter was laid to rest in Hawaii, Duane Chapman shared a new tribute to his soulmate on social media.

And he announced that a second celebration of her amazing life will also take place next week.

Having poured his heart out on many occasions since Beth passed away, Duane kept the caption to the above photo very simple, straightforward and factual this time around.

It simply included the time, date and location of the aforementioned second memorial service:

July 13, 2019 – Heritage Christian Center. 14401 E. Exposition Avenue. Aurora, Colorado 80012 – Doors open at 1:00 Service starts at 2:00.

On June 26, Beth passed away at 51 years old after a long battle with throat cancer.

She had been diagnosed with the disease in 2017… gone into remission… and then was forced into emergency surgery this past November after the illness returned.

Wrote Duane as sad confirmation of her passing last week:

“It’s 5:32 in Hawaii. This is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”

The famous bounty hunter than spoke to reporters and opened up even more about the loss of his wife.

“I loved her so much,” Chapman told these journalists shortly after his wife’s death, adding:

“As Lazarus lay, Jesus said he’s not dead, he’s sleepeth. My final words are Beth isn’t dead, she’s sleeping…

“I hope to god there is a God. I trained myself [to think] ‘What would Jesus do?’ and I hope I’m not just talking to myself. I hope there is a God and if there is, I’m gonna see my honey again.

"That’s all we can do is hope.”

His email is:

Three of Beth’s children — Bonnie Jo Chapman, Cecily Chapman and Lyssa Chapman – spoke out after the first memorial service, expressing their sadness and sorrow and thanking supporters for their well wishes.

Bonnie, for instance, wrote in an Instagram Story update:

“Thank you, everyone, who came today. She’d love the ceremony and the flowers everyone brought. Thank you for joining us on this emotional ride.”

Lyssa also shared a message about the service.

“Someone wake me up from this awful dream,” she wrote. “I have no words. Still in disbelief. Pray for our family, as we lost our strongest member."
