This saddens me greatly and leaves me in tears


Rest In Peace

This man will be dearly missed.
I adored this man, he treated animals with respect and loved them greatly. This man was a wonderful and compassionate human being and I'm afraid, like my friend said, that compassion will die out eventually. I will miss him deeply.

When my friend linked me and part of the url said 'obit_irwin' I was like "Steve Irwin?" but figured 'it could not be him'. It was...I immediatly got misty eyed but when I actually said it out loud to tell mom, then when I started to cry. It made it real :(
It seems so unreal! Supposedly he didn't even handle the ray!

I actually thought I'd mis-heard at first.
I feel sorry for his kids with them still being so young...

Supposedly they can't get ahold of his wife to tell her and that she doesn't know yet...
I hope she doesn't hear this on the radio..that would be worst way for her to find out. :(

News report on the bbc says they've been informed... Just hope the press leave her and the kids well alone.

Yeah somebody told me and it finally trickled into the States. I hope so too and I'm just glad that she didn't hear it on the radio. I can't imagine how it would feel to hear that your husband died that way...

It is so sad, his kids are so young. HE was so young. An article I read said it was just bad luck that the ray got him where it did. :(

Sami called and woke me up this morning to tell me. It hasn't really hit me yet though....it's so saddening. When I was in middle school there was a rumor once that he died, and my friend and I kinda freaked out about it and cried and all. So when she told me my first thought was that it was just another rumor. The zoo is going to be buzzing about this =(

It is sad and people are like "what's the big deal? He was just another animal naturalist". He was but he was also hilarious and made kids love him (adults too)..brought so much awareness to the cause. I adored him.

That's really sad...

I think this is the first celebrity death I've actually been upset over since I can remember. He did so much for animals.
