Francie then informed the star that her husband had passed away due to cancer before Beth. Having been through the loss of their partners, the two connected and supported each other to deal with their grief. Eventually, the two fell in love.
Meanwhile, news that comes less than a year after Beth's death has already been approved by Duane's family and close friends. His daughter Lyssa Chapman said, "They are both so happy together and they are good for each other." She stated that Francie was a good woman for her dad. "Francie has been very respectful to all the kids - and to Beth's memory - and my dad is the same way with Bob and their children. They go to church three times a week and dad is trying to give up smoking - she is a good woman for my dad," said the daughter, according to Sun.
Lyssa went on to add that she had never seen her father this happy after the death of Beth. "He's the happiest I've seen him in a long time - he's so in love and wants to spend the rest of his life with Francie. They are both lost their spouses to cancer so they know what it's like to go through that and they are helping each other through it. But at the same time, they are being very respectful of each other's grieving process and they're not trying to replace each other's partner," said the woman, according to Sun.
Moreover, she said Francie was sent to her dad by Beth. "Beth would approve - I honestly believe that Beth sent Francie for my dad - I feel like Beth and Bob are up there watching down over them," said Lyssa, according to Sun.
Family support is special, because earlier when there were rumors that Moon Angell was Chapman's girlfriend, some of his family was dead against the relationship. Lyssa took to Twitter to criticize the woman and wrote, "You’re a disgusting woman. Any person who moves in on a man weeks after losing his wife, who you were supposed to be a ‘friend’ to, Is the lowest scum on the planet-Which for you wasn’t that far of a step down from where you were before. God will get you MARY !!!"
Meanwhile, Bondswoman Rainy, Beth's best friend stated that the reality star had warned them about Moon before her death. "Then we get into 'Moon-gate', which was a problem for all of us, mostly because my best friend gave us all warnings about her, saying 'Don't let her near my husband'," said the woman.
She went to say she was very happy with Francie and Duane's union. "It was hard for me as a friend to see all that happening and there wasn't a damn thing I could do about it. So when he told me about Francie and how their path's crossed - I started looking into her and I thought 'wow she's not too bad at all'. Then I spoke to her and the first thing she said to me was 'I will always treat these kids with respect and honor and I will always honor their mother'," said Rainy, according to Sun.
Beth's friend also added Francie is someone who would have been picked by Beth herself. "I think she is somebody that Beth would have picked. I'm happy because he deserves to be loved and I want him to spend the remainder of his life happy," according to Pop culture.
She also talked about Francie's heart to contribute to the scholarship program in Beth's name.
