"What a too young and too beautiful of a soul to be taken away.... That woman [changed] a whole lot of lives and god dang that girl is funny as s– she has no filter. And jeez do we need more of her here on earth. I just [can't] believe this," one fan wrote. "My favorite show and my favorite one off the show is gone because of cancer. I say F cancer."

Just weeks before Beth's death, Lyssa, 32, and Beth got into a feud on Twitter after Beth said Lyssa never sent her a message on Mother's Day. However, sources said Beth and Lyssa "reconnected" before her death and ended things on good terms.

During Beth's Hawaii memorial, Lyssa shared a photo with the heartbreaking caption, "Someone wake me up from this awful dream. I have no words. Still in disbelief. Pray for our family, as we lost our strongest member."
