The widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle made public a letter she wrote to remember him on what would have been the couple’s 13th wedding anniversary.

Taya Kyle released her letter on the Facebook page of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation on Monday. The nonprofit works to aide service members, their families and first responders.

“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. 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. I am somewhere in between today. […] I loved you yesterday, I love you now, and I will love you all the days of my life,” Ms. Kyle wrote.

Ms. Kyle plans on releasing a memoir on her life with the famous Navy SEAL in May. “American Wife: A Memoir of Love, War, Faith and Renewal” is scheduled to be released May 4.

In February, Eddie Ray Routh was convicted of killing Kyle and veteran Chad Littlefield on Feb. 2, 2013, during a trip to a Texas gun range.
