Thank you everyone, I too really feel for Terri & his young family..
To a lot of Aussies Steve took a lot of risks & did some really silly antics & put himself in danger too many times, I heard many people over the last few years say that a Croc would probably get him one day....but to go this way, by a creature that usually is placid,is a terrible terrible thing,words fail to express how saddened it makes me, the support from everyone has been amazing & we know he was loved by you all & its truly appreciated.
There are people who you never meet, but you feel like you know them. Especially people who share so much of themselves - who they really ARE - by doing what they love. These people make us laugh and learn and feel a bit more joy in life. To me, that was Steve Irwin. I was so sorry to hear about his death. He seemed so invincible. And I'm really sorry for his beautiful family who have to go on without him.
My daughter and myself got to meet his family and himself thru the make a wish foundation, it was my daughters wish to go to australia zoo, she was diagnosed with cancer and this is an organisation in australia that grants wishes to children with terminal illnesses, i am blessed she is still with us, and my heart goes to Terri and the kids, they took us into their home and treated us like family, they are truley a beautiful family and steve and terri were like long lost friends, they are so down to earth, I asked steve how did all the publicity affect him and his family, he says that if it saves animals then he will do what it takes as for the status, he told us that the kids with cancer are the true heros in this world and that he is just a ordinary guy who puts his shorts on like us all 1 leg at a time, so not to treat him any different than just another mate.... we have fond memories prayers to his family, and I know that I will never forget this man and all he has done we were with him for 1 whole week and I felt that I had known him a lifetime...
Take care of all the animals in heaven mate we will miss and love you always
