How my family will miss the great Steve Irwin, Crocodile Hunter. His television shows were educational,entertaining, and appealing to all ages. We were fortunate enough to have had Steve and Terri visit to my home town, Ft. Walton Beach, Fl, USA to do some filming of our local Florida wildlife on the Eglin Air Force Base military reservation. He also took a flight in one of the military fighter aircraft while he was here at Eglin Air Force Base. Steve was so popular, and his loss is truly a loss to both people and wildlife of the world. WE WILL MISS YOU STEVE!

My sympathy goes out to Steve's family.i raised my child watching The Crockhunter he is the most courageous person that I have ever seen. I hope Terrie carries on with his work and continues to let his fans watch his movies. We are all shocked and saddened by his death.

Steve Irwin was a man, with a really big heart
He loved animals, right from the start
Saving wildlife, was his main concern
So that adults and children, would be able to learn
Whether it was wrestling a croc, or saving a kangaroo
Steve loved spending time, at the australia zoo
He was a wonderful husband, and a loving dad
And he shared with others,all the knowledge of animals, that he had
The only time he showed fear, in his life
Was when he got married, to Terri his wife
What else can I say, that hasn't already been said
What an amazing life, this man led
Although his spirit is here, but his body is gone
Steve Irwins name, will always live on

I am sending late sympathies due to illness. I just want to let you know that there are people in this world that radiate love for faith, family, humans, nature and wild animals all the same. The faith they hold is what every individual on earth should have. As I watched your daughter and all of her strength, she reminded me of my daughter just turned 9. They have this faith and this understading that is from faith. I did not go through anything close to what you went through, but my oldest baby, Guilianna was my strong hold. If it were not for her, I could not have made it through my situation.

I watched your Bindi and cryied for you. Not in sadness, but in faith. She is there to help you through your hardship. I am so sorry for your loss and the loss for your children. I am not trying to say I understand any of your situations, I just want to say, the Lord blessed you with an Angel. She is your way through this hardship. Please feel no guilt that she is so strong and you just want to crawl in a corner and be left alone. I understand.

I hope I crossed any line! I just see in your daughter your husbands love for family, faith, animals, and nature all with the same enthusiasm equaly.

You are truly blessed. My family's prayers are with you!

God Bless,

Jackie and Guilianna Strauss
