Tears flow as Taya Kyle eulogizes husband; Marine offers glove

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.

Love that one of the military men gave #ChrisKyle ‘s wife a glove to use as a handkerchief.The support for the family is incredible.

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.
