By now you’ve probably heard of Bradley Cooper‘s newest movie American Sniper.
Not only has it been nominated for six Oscars and broken the record for highest grossing January premiere, it’s also a true story about a four-tour Iraq War veteran named Chris Kyle.
And while Chris himself may have passed away in 2013, his wife Taya has recently shared a rather heartfelt message on her Facebook page about the movie’s success, saying:
“Today I don’t know exactly what to write. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and my heart is full. American Sniper has broken records, which follows such an honest path of Chris’s life. We never expected anything and were always in a moment of stunned silence at the response from all the beautiful people in this world.”
But that’s not all she wrote.
She continued to talk about her love for her husband and how much she misses him, saying:
“To Chris: I miss you and yet I know you are here. You are the man who I couldn’t have even dreamt of because you were/are better than I could have dreamed, the love of my life, my friend, partner and the man who laughed with me through the pain and found joy in the smallest and best parts of life.”
That’s just so sad.
We wish Taya nothing but the best as the story based on her life and struggles continues to captivate the majority of the country.
