DOG The Bounty Hunter’s daughter Cecily reunited with brother Garry after a year apart as they both continue to struggle with mom Beth’s death.
Cecily revealed she had made the long trip from her home in Hawaii to Jackson, Michigan, so the pair could catch up and spend some quality time together.

It will be the first time the close siblings have been together since their mother’s funeral last July.
Their beloved mom, Beth Chapman, passed away after a brave battle with throat and lung cancer last June.
“I flew to Chicago from Hawaii, it was a nine hour flight and then I took a train six hours to Michigan – it’s a long journey,” Cecily told The Sun.
“I want to give Garry Boy my motherly touch, go cook him some food, clean up his house a little bit, just show him some love.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen Garry since our mom’s funeral.
“It’s been so long, it’ll be the first time we’ve had one-on-one time for a while, and the first time I’ve stayed at his house.
“It’s exciting – big sissy’s in town!”
Garry has been living on his own in Michigan for the past few months where he now works as a sheriff.
His last post on Instagram was a poignant message to his mom for her birthday, where he wrote: “Some days I’m up. Some days I’m down. Some days I turn and look for you with thoughts I’d like to share.
“Some days I wonder what you would think or say. Some days I struggle to go on just wishing you were here. Most days I spend in gratitude that you were ever here.
“Miss you momma, happy birthday.”

Sharing a picture of the 19-year-old riding a horse, he wrote: “Francie and I love you Garry Boy, and we’re so proud of you.”
He captioned the snap: “No matter how bad things are, just keep going; keep the same past, don’t let anything get in your way.”
Cecily meanwhile has spoken openly about her difficulties after her mom’s death – previously telling The Sun it has been the “worst year of her life.”
But she decided to take a trip to cheer herself up – to see her brother and work on her clothing line ForBeth.

“I hope he appreciates it because I don’t belong in the cold – and it’s freezing here,” Cecily joked.
“I’m loving it though. It’s the first time I’ve left the island [Hawaii] in a while and it feels good to have some fresh air, I’ve been so cooped up in the house.
“I needed to get away and have a break and get some life into me – and see my little brother.
“We are very close and we keep in touch but haven’t managed to see each other in a while because he moved and I moved and now we are all settled I took it upon myself to make the trip.
