Life is a terminal disease. I never thought much of Irwin as he used and abused animals. don't get the adoration.

He left us too soon and is still missed by his legions of fans. Thanks Barb.

Sure there were disagreements in the Irwin Family but every family has disagreements. I think Steve was a great animal warrior; maybe his techniques were different from the way someone else would've handle the situation but he still loved animals. I am very proud to have Steve as my avatar! I do not understand why Bindi, of all people, is going to be ambassador to SeaWorld. I'm sure Steve is probably up in arms about it from Heaven but he knows she'll come around.

His death was just random, sad and tragic.

So many of us thought he would live forever. My son and I were up in Queensland and decided not to go to Australia Zoo that trip, we thought there'd be plenty of time later - little did we know what was looming, I'm glad the truth has finally come out. To all the nay-sayers and non-fans I say, what have you really done to help animals? Can you say you ever did anywhere near as much as this great aussie man did? No, I didn't think so. Thank you for the story, Barb. RIP Steve, may your legacy live forever. From Nimue, an aussie.
