Fans will be able to share their own memories, thoughts and condolences with the family by sending them to Richard Moore, a member of Duane “Dog” Chapman’s media team, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Heritage Christian Center is located at 14401 E. Exposition Avenue.
Previously, Dog had announced that July 13 would be the tentative date for the Colorado memorial service and said that other specific details would be announced at a later date.
The Colorado service will come two weeks after Beth’s family hosted another public memorial dedicated to her in her other home state of Hawaii. The Chapman family invited the public to partake in that service as well, as was per her wishes.
The Chapman family lawyer Andrew Brettler told USA Today that Beth was ‘sent off in true Hawaiian style, with aloha’, with guests asked to bring ‘ocean-friendly loose flowers’ rather than leis, which are held together with string. Fans were encouraged to share videos and pictures from the ceremony with the hashtag #AlohaOeMrsDog’. Brettler explained: ‘Oe means “you” in Hawaiian. 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.’ According to the Daily Mail, Dog said at the ceremony: ‘She said, “Please Hawaiian style … please do this right”. ‘She loved Hawaii and she loved people. The people mostly she loved.
