Remembering Chris Kyle

Brandon Thibodeaux for The New York Times

It breaks my heart to hear of the death of Chris Kyle.  Mom and Dad posted a tribute to him on her Facebook page:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and many friends of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle tonight. Todd and I first met Chris in Pella, Iowa, when he helped out with security for the premiere of the film “The Undefeated.” And later we became friends with Chris when he was on “Stars Earn Stripes” with Todd. Chris was a wonderful man, a good friend, and a true American hero who loved our country and served honorably. He was loved and admired by so many, and he will never be forgotten.

Dad told me he had a wife and two kids, so please pray for them! I never met Chris, but my parents spoke so highly of him. And, on Stars Earn Stripes, do you remember he called my dad Rambo?  I am just so sad to hear of his death.  He was a true American hero.

    Chris, Chad, and Bristol’s brother gave so much for this country. I was reading Chris Kyle’s book American Sniper when this incident happened. My heart goes out to Chris’s wife, Taya, and his two children and to the family of Chad Littleton. I am donating to Glen Beck’s fund for the Kyle family at Mercury One. We should also keep in mind the families of two ex-Navy Seal’s families, whom our government turned their backs on. The president, Leon Panetta, Mike Dempsey, and Hilary Clinton. You remember, “What does it matter?”. My hope is that the Dallas Cowboy Stadium is filled to the rafters on Monday to honor our hero. God Bless, Cowboy!
