The widow of the man whose life was portrayed in the acclaimed film “American Sniper” has penned a heartfelt letter to him on their 13th anniversary.

Taya Kyle posted her letter March 16 on the Chris Kyle Facebook page, where she proclaimed, “I miss you and I love you. I feel you in my heart and soul so strongly. I am more blessed to have been your wife than anything else in my life.”

“Today, I have a choice. I can bury myself under the covers and acknowledge the pain of missing you and mourn the future anniversaries without you,” she wrote. “Or, I can celebrate never having a day without you in my heart because you loved me enough to leave me a lifetime of memories and beauty.”

Kyle, a Navy SEAL, has been credited as the most successful sniper in United States military history. Bradley Cooper was nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of Kyle in this winter’s film “American Sniper,” which was based on Kyle’s bestselling autobiography.

The film, directed by Clint Eastwood, has become the highest-grossing war movie ever.

Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield were shot and killed at a gun range in 2013 by Eddie Ray Routh. A Texas jury found Routh guilty of capital murder in February, and he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    There are some pay for each lead programs
    out there, but I do not like those much. I advise you to register your website for as
    long as possible, preferrably 10 years. I would also consider running some type of
    promotion for the day of the expo.

    They wished to launch their company into the United States, so Morita decided
    to alter the name of the manufacturing company to something that could very easily be recognised.

    In specific tricky situations, in case you do want to override the Intelligent Automatic
    function and make adjustments yourself, this model of
    Panasonic Lumix digital camera lets you do it – which can be
    more than might be said for final year’s ZS3. Pixels are the elements on the sensor that capture the details of the objects being photographed.

    9) Memphis (Power rating: 92): If defense really is a difference maker
    in the first round of the playoffs, look for Memphis to finally make some noise this postseason. Even though his decision may not
    win him a championship, I am predicting that Ray Allen will go to Cleveland.
