Heartbreaking: Notes from Chris Kyle’s children on back of program; ‘I never wanted you to die’

The heartache is too much. Printed on the back of the Chris Kyle memorial service program are notes from his children. They read:


I love you Dad. You are the best dad ever. I never wanted you to die. I will miss your heart. I will love you even if you died. Love you forever,

Baby Girl.


I miss you a lot. One of the best things that has happened to me is you. I love you Dad. I always will.



Tears. Tragic and so heartbreaking.

Goodbye, American hero. We will never forget you and we will continue to hold your precious and loved children in our hearts and prayers.

    I cannot say, and will not say
    that he is dead. He is just away.

    With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
    he has wandered into an unknown land

    and left us dreaming how very fair
    it needs must be, since he lingers there.

    And you– oh, you, who the wildest yearn
    for an old-time step, and the glad return,

    think of him faring on, as dear
    in the love of there as the love of here.

    Think of him still as the same. I say,
    he is not dead– he is just away.

    With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand
    he has wandered into an unknown land,

    and left us dreaming how very fair
    it needs must be, since he lingers there.

    And you– O you, who the wildest yearn
    for the old-time step and the glad return–,

    think of him faring on, as dear
    in the love of There as the love of Here;

    Think of him still as the same, I say:
    He is not dead– he is just away.

    I met him January at Shot Show 2013… Its so crazy to realize that he’s gone. I will say that I would say I would rather see him die here than over there and have the government use his death like they did with Pat Tillman… A couple of amazing men who laid it all on the line for this country. RIP

    “‘O shrieve me, shrieve me, holy man!’
    The Hermit crossed his brow.
    ‘Say quick,’ quoth he, ‘I bid thee say—
    What manner of man art thou?’

    Forthwith this frame of mine was wrenched
    With a woful agony,
    Which forced me to begin my tale;
    And then it left me free.

    Since then, at an uncertain hour,
    That agony returns:
    And till my ghastly tale is told,
    This heart within me burns.

    I pass, like night, from land to land;
    I have strange power of speech;
    That moment that his face I see,
    I know the man that must hear me:
    To him my tale I teach.”

    Rest well, Sir, May God grant thee peaceful rest.

    Another patriot is gone.

    Lord please take care of this man – this father, son, husband, friend, this sailor, this SEAL – and his precious family.

    True American Hero. May his memory be for a blessing, and may he continue to inspire present and future generations.

    Imagine all the Iraqi children, every bit as pure and innocent as these, and what they wrote of/to their murdered fathers.

    This is the world neocons created–full of mournful, paralyzing misery following scenes of unspeakable horror.
