Rest Easy

I don't know who took the photo, and I imagine it was taken in violation of the family's wishes, but it is precious to me, to see the tribute of over 100 tridents slapped into Chris Kyle's coffin.


I can't verify it, but many news outlets have reported that there were people on every overpass between Midlothian and Austin today, waiting for Kyle's funeral procession to pass by.  I wouldn't doubt it. 


 
Photos from here and here.
Kerrcarto posted some other photos, take a look at those, as well.

God bless Kyle's family, and thank God this patriot was a Texan - he got the farewell all of our heroes deserve, but one that he certainly would not have gotten in too many other places in our country.  Rest easy, Chief.
