The plans for her Hawaiian memorial service sound like the perfect way to honor Beth Chapman.
Beth Chapman passed away this week at age 51 from lung cancer. She was put into a medically-induced coma last week and was never able to recover.
The news has sparked an outpouring of condolences and support from fans and celebrities. She was loved by many people.
Thanks to her daughter Cecily and stepdaughter Lyssa Chapman, we now know the details of her memorial service in Hawaii.
It will be held on Saturday, June 29 at 2 p.m. at Fort DeRussy Beach in Waikiki, Hawaii.
The family is inviting the public to attend. There will be a traditional Hawaiian ‘Oli (chant) followed by prayer and then a paddle out into the ocean.
The family is asking those attending to bring ocean-friendly flowers that can be thrown into the water, but no leis as the strings can become tangled around marine life.
The press release about the event reads, in part:
“Beth had two homes – Hawai’i and Colorado. ‘I love Hawai’i the most,’ she said, so she will be sent off in true Hawaiian style, with aloha.”
“Duane Chapman is also finalizing plans for a memorial service in Colorado, and details will be announced shortly. Those wishing to post photos and videos are asked to tag with #alohaoemrsdog.”
