For Taya Kyle, the widow of legendary Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, a Texas jury's decision to unanimously convict her husband's killer of capital murder will surely serve as an important step in the healing process after her tremendous loss.

Kyle penned a graceful Facebook post following the jury decision on Tuesday night, thanking the jury in Stephenville, Texas, and revealing the song that "is" Chris Kyle.

"God Bless the Jury And good people of Stephenville, Texas!!" she wrote. She later added, "Chris, you are the love of my life. You live on in my heart. You always will. I hope we all live lives that make you proud. And babe, Rest assured you don't need a fancy resting place - you live on... Safe In the hearts you left behind."

Kyle also spoke fondly of "The Hearts I Leave Behind," a new song from Pete Scobel featuring Wynonna Judd. She referred to Scobel as Chris' "teammate" and said of the song: "This song is Chris. It is me. It is all the people who carry Chris in the hearts he left behind."

You can listen to a preview of the song and/or download it here. All proceeds from the song will go to the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.
