Yesterday, a heartbreaking memorial service was held at Cowboys Stadium for the slain American hero. His friend, actor Dean Cain, gave thanks to the Dallas Cowboys’ owner and remarked on the moving memorial.

The program for the service made hearts hurt; it featured notes from Kyle’s young children, grieving and mourning the loss of their beloved father. Taya Kyle, Chris’ widow, gave a haunting and heartbreaking eulogy.

Today, American hero Chris Kyle is being laid to rest in Austin, Texas. Citizens take to the streets to line them in honor of Chris Kyle, as his funeral procession drives by.

Patriot Guard Riders were in attendance, and one might have been injured during the procession.

He is in our thoughts and prayers as well; we pray he is uninjured.

Chris Kyle, the nation will never forget you or your sacrifice. May your family and loved ones take comfort in the outpouring of unwavering support with which your funeral procession was met today. May your children take comfort in their memories of you, as they grow up to know what a brave and honorable man their daddy was, and how much he was respected and honored. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with them.

America mourns.

May you rest in peace, hero.

    I saw him interviewed on O’Reilly around a year ago. I’m just an ordinary Englishman who is very fond of the US but my overriding thought was “what a fantastic bloke!”, if I were a soldier I’d want him at my shoulder anyday and everyday. Absolutely gutted to hear of his murder …. such a shame it should happen to such a good man.

    • freeinaz

      What a great comment from an outstanding Englishman. Your a tribute to your country and mankind. Thank you sir.

    This Hero gave it all, still giving…. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 In the arms of Christ.

  • CatHerder

    That’s how we treat fallen heroes in the Lone Star State.

      You would be correct.

    Maybe, just MAYBE the POTUS will acknowledge Chris Kyle in his SOTU address tonight. Not holding my breath.

    • Tom Bannigan

      Where O fails, the people stand up because they understand what “We the people” means.

      Any acknowledgement from Obama would only be a lie.

    In the dank and smelly recesses of the septic tank from which the liberals in our midst reside, these photos and videos are a stark and frightening reminder of what the real America is all about. God bless Chief Petty Officer Kyle — Your mercy and love shall envelope his family and friends for eternity. For my fellow Texans, we showed the world American values and decency in the midst of tragedy and heartbreak. Where’s the liberal media on this? Don’t answer — we all know: give a tongue bath to the carnival huckster and his sycophantic gaggle of brain dead supporters.

    RIP Chris Kyle. You are what so many want to be. Thank you for helping our fellow Veterans.

    Let’s make it loud and clear that as a population, we are disappointed in the lack of response from the white house.

    I’m beginning to think Texas has become more of what this country SHOULD be, then sadly, what it is. No wonder so many are moving there.

    That America can still produce someone like Chris Kyle gives me hope that all is not lost.

    It is heartrending to see what socialism/marxism has done to this once great nation. The bad always drives out the good and the good are getting beaten down right now. Lets lift our spirits and start figting back!

    America was blessed to have him, if only for a short time.
