LC is from boards we frequented in years gone by. The Porch, Qwerty's, Twisted Sisters, Acme boards from the late 90's, etc. etc. She's a very good egg.

Did anyone else watch the memorial service just now on the Discovery Channel? WOW. What a truly heart-felt, joyous and bittersweet celebration.

The whole thing was excellent - a lot of fun, raucous video with him with animals, lots of beautiful and touching memories, and his father and his darling little daughter Bindi Sue left everyone in tears. When Steve Irwin's interview about his mother's death, that the best tribute you can pay a beloved family member is to carry on their life's work, crikey. What a moment.

The final scene was his right hand man (sorry, I forget his name) loading up Steve's gear in the back of the truck, and driving slowly away, with the Australian zoo folks in their usual khaki outfits serving as honor guard and following behind.

We'll miss you, Steve Irwin. Prayers that others will step in and carry your torch.

Yes I did watch it and cried through most of it. Although it was a celebration of his life, it was incredibly sad. Everytime they showed Terri, weeping, sitting tall with her 2 children, she was the epitome of a shattered life and broken heart. His truck being loaded at the end for the last time, did me in. His daughter is him. She's a brilliant child and I read somewhere that Terri said Bindi is her rock through this. I can see that now.

We miss you Steve.
