Funeral for Beth Chapman to be held in Aurora on Saturday, service will stream live online.

Dog the Bounty Hunter fans will be given a final chance to pay their respects to the late Beth Chapman when her funeral is streamed live online this weekend.

Services for Beth will be held at the Heritage Christian Center in Aurora, Colorado on Saturday, July 13 at 2 p.m. MT. The ceremony will be open to the public, as well as broadcasted on WGNAmerica.com and the Dog’s Most Wanted Facebook page.

Beth’s husband Duane Chapman announced the details for the event on Twitter, explaining they will use Beth’s funeral to “tuck her in [and] tell her goodnight, for she sleepeth.”

Duane also shared a heartbreaking photo of his wife hugging him as he tosses away flowers typically found on a lei. At the top of the image—which has been edited to make Beth look like an angel with pink wings—it reads, “Goodbye (for now).”

The celebrity couple shared two homes in Colorado and Hawaii, and Beth reportedly wished for services to be held in both states. The funeral on the mainland comes two weeks after family, friends, and fans of Beth gathered on the beach in Honolulu, Hawaii to honor her life during a “Hawaiian-style” memorial ceremony. According to USA Today, attendees were asked to bring “ocean-friendly loose flowers” rather than traditional leis, because “the strings can be harmful to ocean life.” Beth’s loved ones also paddled out into the water as part of another Hawaiian funeral tradition.

“‘Oe means ‘you’ in Hawaiian,” Andrew Brettler, the Chapman family lawyer, said in a statement. “It is customary to say ‘Aloha ‘oe’ especially when saying farewell. There is a song by the same name which Hawaiians often sing at the end of a party, funerals, or when people are leaving the islands.”

Aloha ‘oe, Beth.
