Beth Chapman's life honored at Colorado memorial service

It was the second memorial for the late reality star, who was previously honored with a June ceremony in Waikiki, Hawaii, the state where Beth died.

"Duane 'Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman (L) and Beth Chapman attend the Vettys Presidential Inaugural Ball at Hay-Adams Hotel in Washington, on January 20, 2017.

"Chapman said she then told her family "'I love you" and "Are you guys all okay?

Though he tried to keep on a strong face, his voice started to crack as he said, 'I can't believe she's gone'.

Dog also became emotional when he recalled one of his last conversations with Beth.

"She'd gotten sick, they told her she got cancer". I want to wake up from a dream.

I wanted to hurt your feelings so you'd feel it. "Don't worry, ' but she never accepted it". "She is [just] in another place..." "I'm sad", he told the audience, wiping away tears. They were now filming a new reality series with WGN America called "Dog's Most Wanted", which is the first unscripted series on WGN in five years. The cancer returned late a year ago and spread to her lungs. Beth and Duane's daughter, Bonnie, also took the stage to share some heartbreaking words about her "rock".

But it's also where the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general has said migrants are receiving substandard care. The new adult holding facility is being built at the Marcelino Serna Port of Entry, about 30 miles southeast of El Paso.

"I've lost 17 lbs.in about two weeks. I never thought that I would have to walk down the aisle without her", she began. Leland Chapman lives in Alabama, according to AL.com. "I lost my rock.I never imagined having to write a speech about this and I'll never forget my mother".

'She was so gorgeous, ' he continued. And I said, "I don't know".

Additionally to Duane's request, their son Gary also briefly spoke about his mom.

ET spoke exclusively with 66-year-old Duane on Wednesday to talk about his upcoming Dog the Bounty Hunter spinoff - Dog's Most Wanted, set to air on WGN America - and he broke down in tears while talking about grieving the loss of Beth.

"People would say I lived a long and great life, sometimes a hard life."
"There'll never be another Beth".

For instance, Beth would always help him read the menu at restaurants because the lighting would be so dim - but, without her, he "can't see the freakin' menu".

"I'm so thankful she was able to share her life and our family's life with all of you. I got to force feed myself like I force fed her". I mean it. And then I wake up in the middle of the night and I see her and it doesn't register that ain't her.
