My two children ages 8 and 13 grew up watching Steve! My 8 year old daughter(the same age as Steve's daughter Bindi) was very upset when I told her that her favorite person on TV(THE CROC HUNTER) had died! She had so many questions and didn't understand! She asked me ( What is his children going to do without there daddy)? I can't imagine the pain his children and wife(Terry) are feeling. My daughter is so close to her dad, it reminds me of Steve and Bindi's relationship they had together. They say there is something extra special with a father and his daughter's relationship, she was truly a daddy's girl! Who knows in a few years she may follow in her father's footsteps! May god bless Terry, Bindi, Little Bob and Bob(Steve's Father). Help keep them strong and guide then through this very painful time. Steve may you rest in PEACE, you will be GREATLY MISSED by my family and many others! WE LOVE YOU

Steve was a great guy who loved his family his passion and walked what he believed everyday. There will truly be an empty space in our hearts. Our prayers are with his wife and children that they will let God turn this into something good and continue the work that Steve set out to do. May you find Gods peace.

The death of Steve Irwin was one of those things that just completly catch you off guard. I mean, yes, he dealt with dangerous animals the majority of the time, and yes, to you deranged PETA members who insulted a man who PROTECTED wildlife, it may seem like shock t.v because he had such enthusiasm for his job, but it was a stroke of bad luck, and he died doing what he loved, not to mention it being for his daughter.

And Parasite, why did you waste the time that you could be using to commit some hate crime to post about a man you obviously loathe? Your a sad excuse for even an angry man and I hope God has mercy on your lack-their-of soul.

All I can say is Rest In Piece Steve, your shows were wholesome and educational, watching you from when I was a kid till know, Im going to miss knowing that their was someone out there who cared so passionatly about all kinds of animals. May people learn from you and that your family carry your legacy.

God bless Terri Irwin, keep her strong for her children!

RIP Steve Irwin.

Such a Tragic Loss of the only true Wild Life Warrior for our planets animals. It's hard to imagine our planet without him. His passion, and enthusiasm and love for all creatures great or small will hopefully live on through his family. His Eternal Flame will warm our hearts forever. It's so hard to understand why his life was cut short, when he did so much good for so many. I hope his beloved Australia would construct an Eternal Flame in his honor. His light will shine forever. He is with the angels, his Mom and beloved dog Sui. My prayers are with his family & Friends, may they find comfort and peace. May God Bless and watch over them and grant them peace. Eileen-R.N.

Steve was so much admired by the whole world over. It is so hard to believe he is gone. My mom is 83 yrs of age and she thought Steve was all it was. She never missed any of his adventures on animal planet. Steve may you rest in peace always. We loved you so much. Terri you and your family have my deepest sympathy.
