Bonnie Chapman, the daughter of Beth and Duane "Dog" Chapman, has shared a throwback photo of her late mother in a heartfelt birthday tribute on social media. Taking to Instagram, Chapman shared a photo of Beth all bundled up outside in a snowy setting. "I miss you everyday," she wrote in the post's caption. "Happy birthday, mom."
Chapman is not the only member of her family to share a birthday tribute post for their late matriarch. In his own post, Dog also shared a photo of Beth and wrote, "You are celebrating this day with Jesus and all his angels. That's the only thing that gets us through without you. Happy birthday Beth. We miss you & love you." Bonnie's brother Garry memorialized their mother by writing a sweet poem for her. "Some days I’m up. Some days I’m down. Some days I turn and look for you with thoughts I’d like to share. Some days I wonder what you would think or say. Some days I struggle to go on just wishing you were here. Most days I spend in gratitude that you were ever here," he penned. "Miss you momma, happy birthday."

Lyssa Chapman, Dog's daughter and Beth's stepdaughter, shared a throwback photo of Beth and Lyssa's daughter Mady, and recounted a heartbreaking moment of sorrow for the two. "Mady came running to my room last night, eyes filled with tears. She looked up at me and said. 'Mom I miss my Grandma.' I hugged her as she sobbed. I had a hard time coming up with anything comforting to say to her, because I miss you too," she wrote on Instagram.
Lyssa went on to say, "I find small comfort knowing for your last birthday we had an amazing dinner at [Morton's The Steakhouse]. I got in some trouble that night and I’ll never forget you laughing at me the next day. We miss you so much Beth Chapman. Rest easy. Happy heavenly Birthday, Mom."
Beth passed away in June 2019, after a lengthy battle with cancer. She was 51 years old at the time of her death. Dog has since begun a new chapter of his life, after dating and getting engaged to his new love, Francie Frane. Notably, he has done so with the blessing of his children, who all appear to think highly of Frane.
