“Attendees are encouraged to dress comfortably,” a press release states. “Since this is a public event and safety and security is a top priority, please be aware that there will be an enhanced police presence to ensure safety of all attendees and bags will be subject to search.”

For fans who are unable to make it to Colorado, the memorial will be live-streamed on WGNAmerica.com and on Dog’s Facebook page.

Beth was first diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in September 2017, and though she confirmed two months later that she was cancer-free, the disease returned the following fall. In November 2018, Beth underwent emergency surgery and doctors found that the cancer had spread to her lungs.

Dog announced the news of Beth’s death in a Twitter post in June. “It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain,” the former bail bondsman wrote. “Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”
