The late Dog the Bounty Hunter star, Beth Chapman is being missed deeply this holiday weekend by her daughter, Cecily, who took to social media on Thursday to share how she feels her mother “everywhere” she goes. On the Fourth of July, Cecily took to Instagram Stories to share a touching snapshot of a bouquet of large plumeria flowers with the caption, “I feel her everywhere.”
The photo was not the first shared by Cecily on Thursday. The reality TV star daughter also took to Instagram to share a throwback snapshot of herself smiling with her late mother sporting a pair of sunglasses and her signature smile, leaving the caption blank and the image to speak for itself.
“I am sorry for your loss,” one fan wrote. “Your family came on my TV right after my husband passed in 2004 I was 38 and spiraling into depression and drugs. I listened to what your mom and dad said every week and been clean ever since. Thank you for sharing them with us. God bless.”
“You are literally your mums twin I’m so very sorry such a beautiful women and incredible soul [heart emoji] sending you all the hugs and love from England,” another wrote alongside the kiss emoji.
“Two gorgeous lady’s (sic) right there!” added another. “Cecily keep your mom’s light on keep posting pictures and videos it’s amazing tell her story to others you could really help someone tell them that your mom was like Mike Tyson she fought for life because that’s how much she loved her family!”
Cecily is Chapman’s daughter from her first marriage to Keith Barmore. While it was a short-lived affair, starting and ending in 1991, it gave the late reality TV personality her daughter and years later, Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman had adopted her as his own, making her a part of their blended family.
“All you have to do is look in the mirror & you’ll see your Beautiful Mama & her smile [winky face emoji]. She is with you, you just can’t see her. I promise you! My journey has been full of loss & I know she is there, you just have to listen & see signs,” another wrote in the comments section of the image.
Cecily has one older half-brother, from a high school relationship Chapman had in high school, along with two younger siblings, Garry and Bonnie, from Dog and Chapman’s relationship. Additionally, Cecily has nine other step-siblings through Dog, who has a total of 12 children himself.0comments
