A tearful Dog also said that she asked them not to worry. Beth died on Wednesday morning from throat cancer, a disease she valiantly fought for two years.
Reality television stary Beth Chapman and wife of Duane "Dog" The Bounty Hunter tragically passed away on Wednesday in Hawaii after a long battle with cancer. A tearful Dog revealed her final words to him and his family. He said even in her last hour she was more bothered about the family than herself. He said, "When she had an attack I didn’t know anything to do but to say 'in Jesus’ name' and hold her and when I said 'in Jesus’ name' she said, 'Say it again, say it more.' And then she told the girls and everybody, with her mouth — she came out of it a couple times — 'I love you' and 'Are you guys all okay? Don’t worry'” reports People.
He added, "So amazing, this is totally unbelievable." Dog further revealed how she had left notes for him all over the house as if she wanted to 'control' him and send him a message even after she was gone, "Beth was somewhat of a control person — not from the grave but from heaven. I’m sure she’s still controlling me and I’ve got notes in my pillowcases, on my sink, in my shaving thing. She’s still telling me what to wear."
He stated, "Her way was to live. She wanted to live so bad and she fought so long, and the reason she fought, she liked life but she wanted to show people how to beat it and what to do when it got her. One of the last things she said (was) 'It’s a test of my faith'. She had faith and that was it. There’s things you go through when you’re dying, like steps like you do when you lose someone, right? You get mad at them, and then you go through all these steps.”
He noted, "Well, the last step when you’re dying is to accept it. And she said to me the other day, 'Honey, that last step, I ain’t taking…' So go Bethy.” After a fight with stage 2 throat cancer that started in 2017, it was a long journey that took Beth and her fans on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Talking about her fight to beat the disease while she was still alive, Beth said, "I knew I couldn’t let it take me over. I had to keep moving, every day, moving forward. That’s all you can do when you get a diagnosis like this."
She added, "So I take it each day at a time. And I’ll fight it with all that I have. I take it one day at a time. And I believe in the power of prayer,” An emotional Dog said he felt her presence even after she was gone. "It came very unexpected, really fast All of her clothes were exactly where they were, her makeup, everything. We didn’t prepare. It’s just incredible when you walk alone in the bedroom and you’re there and she was there two days ago.”
In order to cope with the loss, Dog said he was turning to religion even more. "As Lazarus lay, Jesus said he’s not dead, he’s sleepeth. My final words are Beth isn’t dead, she’s sleeping. I hope to god there is a God. I trained myself (to think) 'What would Jesus do?' and I hope I’m not just talking to myself. I hope there is a God and if there is, I’m gonna see my honey again. That’s all we can do is hope."
