I am very sorry to read of Steve Irwin's untimely death. May serenity and acceptance come to his wife and children soon.
He gave us knowledge, humor, excitement, danger and an unparalleled love of animals. The world has lost a very caring and compassionate man, and we are sad.
Edit: My son and his family have been at the beach all weekend. He called this morning to tell me that two people at their beach got stung by stingrays yesterday. He had not heard about Steve, so I had to be the bearer of bad tidings. He loved watching Steve's programs, as we all did, and we found it quite ironic that two people here got stung on the same day. Since stingrays are not usually agressive, it is odd to me. But maybe there are more circumstances of that happening than are generally reported in the news.
