Bonnie Chapman is asking fans to stop asking for her mother Beth’s ashes.
‘Please don’t ask me for my mother’s ashes. Ashes are for family, no one else. No exceptions,’ the 20-year-old wrote in her Instagram stories during a Q&A with fans, along with a photo of the family from Beth’s memorial in Aurora, Colorado over the weekend.
Beth was cremated after she passed away at age 51 following a battle with throat cancer last month, and some of her ashes were spread into the Waikiki waters during a paddle out ceremony.

Bonnie has been opening up to fans on social media as of late, following the death of her mother.
Recently, she told followers her father Dog The Bounty Hunter would never tie the knot again.
‘Nope, he found his soulmate,’ she said in her Instagram stories, according to Us Weekly.
‘No one can replace her in his heart. Their love was one of a kind, it made me believe love truly exists,’ she elaborated.

Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman had already promised Beth he would remain devoted to her once she passed.
‘For two to three years, she knew this might happen,’ he told ET Online through tears. ‘So she would say, “Who is going to sit next to you?” And I said, “No one.” “Big Daddy, you better not let another girl take my place.” I said, “I won’t.”‘
The suffering her mother endured clearly took a toll on Bonnie, who expressed a sense of relief knowing Beth was no longer in pain.

‘Just remembering that cancer can no longer hurt her,’ she said in her Instagram stories, when asked how she was doing after her mother’s death.
‘She’s no longer in pain and finally feels normal again. I do miss her like crazy.’
The life of Beth was honored at a memorial over the weekend in Aurora, Colorado, where Dog delivered an emotional eulogy for his wife.

‘I never admitted she was going to die,’ the star said as his voice wavered.
‘She said ‘How are you going to make it without me?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know… She will never be dead to me.”
Dog married Beth in 2006, and together the pair starred on their hit reality series, Dog The Bounty Hunter.
Beth is survived by her husband, her four children, and 14 grandchildren.
