The Chapman family has been doing all they can to brace for the final goodbye to Chapman, which will take place in Colorado at 2 p.m. local time. In the days leading up to the service, Chapman's husband, Duane "Dog" Chapman has opened up about how he's dealing with the loss, saying that he is "trying to man up" for the sake of his family.
"[With any] new experience that you have, you don't know how you're doing because you've never experienced it," Dog told Entertainment Tonight. "I have a lot of people who depend on me. All my supervisors said, 'Dog, it's time to man up.' So I'm trying to man up."
The memorial service will be live stream on wgnamerica.com and the Dog's Most Wanted Facebook page.
