It sounds crazy, but I felt like I knew the man. What a wonderful attitude he had towards life. I enjoyed watching his antics. The world will miss this sweet man.

We were shocked that he died, our family always loved his enthusiasm when working with the wildlife. He leaves behind such a young family too.

Have a nice Labor Day! :)

Very sad but he lived with a certain amount of danger. I hate to hear of these things. Very sad for his family.

A nice tribute Sandy, a little know fact about Steve, although he handled thousands of venemous snakes over the years he had never been bitten by one!!!
mind you he had been bitten by almost everything else with teeth or fangs.

The death of Steve Irwin is tragic, especially for his family, but I must say not unexpected, with all the dangerous situations he put himself into. A co-worker was interviewed and said, 'He died doing what he loved."

Hi Sandy ~~ Thank you so much for your comment. It is nice to be back, it was only a few days but so frustrating, but
it seems to be OK now. My last post (how true) was on Saturday wishing the Aussie Dads a Happy Father's Day, but that was 2 blogs back. Guess you have the new one http://merle-3rdtimelicky.blogspot.com/
Take care Sandy. Posts everywhere with tributes to the larger than life Steve
Irwin. Too young to die.Hugs, Merle.
