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.

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.
