Dog The Bounty Hunter Reveals Wife Beth Chapman's Last Words
Duane Chapman has revealed his wife's last words were messages for her family.
Beth Chapman passed away yesterday at the age of 51, after being placed into a medically induced coma days before.
Her husband Duane announced the news yesterday in a heartbreaking tweet, saying: "It's 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side."
Speaking to Hawaii News Now, 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', but she never accepted it. So amazing, this is totally unbelievable.
"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. '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."
He then joked: "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.
"She did it her way. There's some things that they predicted that the doctors ended up saying, 'We've never, ever, seen anything like this'. 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."
A shrine has been set up outside the Chapmans' house in Honolulu by her daughter Bonnie, with the family allowing fans to pay their respects.
Beth was first diagnosed with throat cancer in September 2017 and later that year she was given the all clear. However, it later came back and spread to her lungs.
