Tears flow as Taya Kyle eulogizes her husband; Marine offers glove as handkerchief

Those who didn’t see Chris Kyle’s memorial service at Cowboys Stadium today really should see the touching eulogy from his wife, Taya. If this doesn’t get you a little emotional, nothing will. (Taya Kyle’s eulogy begins around the 40-minute mark.)

In addition to the eulogy, a classy move by a Marine escorting Mrs. Kyle also grabbed the attention of some tweeters.

Our condolences are with Taya Kyle, and the Marine who offered his glove as a handkerchief deserves more recognition than he is getting. Chris Kyle’s death may be sad, but it has certainly reminded us that there are heroes in America, both on the battlefield and waiting at home. May he rest in peace.

    That Marine gave her more comfort than President Obama.

      Obama only comforts victims when there is a political benefit to him.

      • syvyn11

        Or when the MSM will give him positive coverage.

      I wonder if Obama set up giving the Medal of Honor to that other brave soldier on the same day so he didn’t have to go and could say he was still honoring soldiers

    Shows how much our military sacrifices for us. God bless all of our military members, and thank you for your service.

    Lord have mercy on this wonderful wife, give to her your peace that surpasses all our understanding. Shine you glowing light of love upon her, as she travels down this road of sorrow. God’s blessing to her, and to the Marine that offered his glove for her tears. Thank you Brother for your service to our Nation.

    RIP. It’s up to us now to look after his family.

    The last thing the Marine who offered his glove would want is recognition.. let the gesture speak for itself.

    • poljunkie♪

      I agree.

      That display cracks my heart, and his care of her… encapsulates his respect and dedication.

  • poljunkie♪

    The Marine’s gesture goes beyond that of a gentleman.

    I’m not sure i’ve ever hear of anything finer and more outstanding.

    • BlueGood

      What an incredibly wonderful but very heart rendering service. Many many people from all over North America cry for Chris’s loss, and pray for Taya, Baby Girl and Bubba, that they find the strength & comfort to carry on….Semper Fi and Den Zegen…..Blessings Without End…..

    Please G-d, shine your light on this family, to guide them through this darkness.

    Where was your president during this?

    • 3seven77

      Same place he was when the consulate in Benghazi was under attack…. nowhere.

    • Michelle

      Who cares? He’s not the slightest bit worthy of uttering one word about such an outstanding, dedicated, loyal, true-to-the-bone American like Chris Kyle. I’m glad Barry has said nothing, Chris doesn’t deserve lip service from such an anti-American coward. I would be offended if Barry did have something to say, he’s not qualified to speak of a man like Chris Kyle.

        Thank you I am tired of us crying because Obama doesnt attend these funerals, like you said he doesnt deserve it. Obama is not worth it.

    The echo of TAPS being played in the stadium is heart-breakingly haunting. Will never again watch a game from that stadium without thinking about it

    • Thomas

      You are correct sir. It’s haunting in person. When I was a young soldier I served on a few funeral details. Taps at the end always moved me to tears along with presenting the flag to the next of kin; in my experience, always a wife.

    I’m pretty sure the Marine was Chris’s brother

  • Earl C Sullivan Jr.

    I watched this and was moved all throughout the memorial. No words can be said on how strong his wife Tara is and the eulogy she gave was EXTREMELY moving. My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family and to Chris Kyle’s parents.

  • Lurker

    That’s Jenna Lee’s husband speaking when the video starts

    I couldn’t watch it.
    I just couldn’t.

  • LuCha

    The president should have been there.

    • 1SkepticalChick

      He’s not worthy to clean Chris Kyle’s boots. Attending would not have brought any positive attention to him. He is not supportive of our Military, or our heros. Period. For him to show up would have been strictly for political purposes and anything he did to attempt to comfort Taya, or their children would have been phoney and therefore disrespectful and insulting. It’s not in his job description to attend the funerals of American Heros. This was about Chris, not O. For him to appear with motorcade and security would have distracted attention from the memorial, and escort motorcade to Austin for Chris. O won’t come to Texas unless it’s to raise funds from a loaded audience. He has nothing to contribute.
      Yes, he did step up to award the Medal of Honor to another American Hero. Appropriate since he had to actually speak to, shake the hand of, look in the eye of, speak words of respect and thanks to, and hang the highest medal our nation can award around the deserving neck of a living American Hero while surrounded by a room full of American Heros. And to then have his center stage position stolen by the baby son of of that American Hero…priceless.

    The Marine is his brother.

    FYI: The Marine who gave Taya his glove is Chris Kyle’s brother, Jeff Kyle.
