From then on my son wouldn't want to watch anything else. We came and spent a couple of hours at night with him. My mother had come out to Hawaii after we put our youngest to rest. Foxx had to live with her in the family quarters on base. When my hubsand and I would come over we'd watch a couple of shows on regular tv and then spend time with the oldest one watching the "Croc Hunter".
This australian family and zoo saved us a little each night and really helped us through a tough time. The oldest still watches the show today and we have given our sincerest condolences to Terry,Bindy and Robert. Steve was an amazing man who touched millions, either through his personality or his conservation work. Wildlife everywhere has lost a true hero.
::sniffles:: I'm sorry, but this brought tears to my eyes, and I just want to say that I'm real sorry for your loss as well, and that I agree with your last sentence immensely.
The world needs more people willing to put nature before themselves.
