Dog the Bounty Hunter honored his late wife Beth Chapman at a memorial service in Aurora, Colo. on Saturday. He also recalled his wife asking him how he was going to make it without her and how he told her he didn't know. "See you on the other side".

Chapman broke down at several points in his speech, in which he remembered the couple's first date and how he'd known he wanted to be with her from the very start. "I leave it next to the bed right there, and I think that might be where it's going to be forever", Dog revealed to ET. My family has been so tough, my father has been doing an fantastic job.

"I can not believe that she is gone". This is not possible. I want to wake up from a dream. "You're out of your mind.' I said, 'Honey, you might have to do chemo and stuff.' She goes, 'All it will do is keep me alive six months longer, and I am not going to do that because I want to be by your side'". He recalled saying his prayers as a child, speaking softly to his wife as he said, "Bethie, now I lay you down to sleep", as his voice cracked again. "So I gotta force-feed myself like I force-fed her". "She is [just] in another place..."

She added, "And she's not here right now but I'm definitely going to miss her laugh-that's something that when it did come, it was like bells, and it really made the whole family happy". At the end of June hunter overtook the USA to head a heavy blow: He lost his beloved wife, Beth, who died at age 51 of cancer of the larynx.

"She'd gotten sick, they told her she got cancer". In November of 2018, Chapman disclosed that her cancer was back, and she subsequently decided that she would not undergo more chemotherapy.

Tapia said even though she didn't know Beth personally, her no-nonsense attitude on TV encouraged her to live a better life.

Beth announced she had been diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer in September of 2017, but beat the disease.

In a recent interview, Chapman tells Entertainment Tonight that he has his wife's ashes.

At one point, he talked about Beth's final days and how she asked him to let her go. He hasn't been able to bring himself to scatter any portion of her ashes yet, finding it too painful. "You were strong for everyone, and you taught me it's okay to let go".

Tweed laughed and admitted Beth could, "throw me like a rag doll". I can't do that. "She is in another place".
