Taylor's remains were returned to Dover Air Force Base early Tuesday morning.

"And it has been and will continue to be the great honor of our seven children for the rest of their lives and I pray for many generations to come", she said.

The Utah mayor who was killed in Afghanistan over the weekend while serving with the state's National Guard had one final wish for "everyone back home".

They say Brent Taylor was in the country to train Afghan commandos and was shot Saturday by one of the trainees at the Kabul military training center.

Utah was in mourning following the news of Taylor's death, and many prominent figures offered their condolences.

"You may or may not be aware of some of our cultural differences", he wrote in the letter, addressed to Taylor's wife, Jennie, "but in Afghanistan family is not everything, for many of us, family are treated as property".

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said in a statement he was "heartbroken at the news" and felt "completely humbled by the service and the ultimate sacrifice offered by this courageous and selfless soldier".

One other American service member who was wounded in the attack is now undergoing medical treatment but in stable condition, according to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation statement. "It's bitter", Maj. Gen. Jefferson S. Burton, the adjutant general of the Utah National Guard, said on Sunday. He served two tours during the Iraq War as well as in Afghanistan, the bio says.

People around the country are mourning the loss of the National Guardsman who was finishing up his latest tour of duty in the war-torn country when he was killed in a so-called "insider" attack. Service members saluted in the rain until the van pulled away.

But Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer J. Cox wrote on his Facebook page that Taylor has been killed.
