Bonnie's post comes just two months ahead of the two-year anniversary of the death of her mother, Beth Chapman, who passed away in 2019 after a lengthy battle with cancer. She was 51 years old at the time of her death. In the months after Beth's death, Bonnie spoke with SurvivorNet about the grief she'd experienced, and explained, "It's really hard I'm not gonna lie."

She continued, "To see new moments of [my mom] that I haven't seen… it brings back a flood of emotion. It makes me feel like she's still here, but then I'm brought back to reality, realizing it's something that happened in the past, not right now." Bonnie also shared that she had been feeling "very vulnerable," and added, "It's unlike anything you could really experience. It's having the whole world have eyes on you in an intimate way and to have the whole world know exactly what you're going through."


Bonnie also spoke about how her father had continued to take care of her mother while she was very ill and her health was failing. "Even as her hair started to diminish, he would tell her that she looked like an Egyptian goddess. He just loved her so much, and I'm really proud of him for sticking with her until the very last moments," she shared. "That's what she needed. She needed someone who loved her as much as my dad did. You know, I think that she truly feels that love now."
