'The Crocodile Hunter' Dies

I was saddened to learn of the death of Steve Irwin, the irrepressible Aussie with the childish grin who never lost his wonder at the power and creatures of nature.
Mr. Irwin was a conservationist, naturalist, television host, zoo curator, and teacher. He entertained millions of people with his signature line when things went awry. 'Cricky! She's a beaut!' I laughed every time he said this while he was rolling around in the mud on top of a captured crocodile.
His death from a stingray was sudden, unexpected, and tragic. I for one will miss this man, his zest for life, his love and devotion to his vocation. Rest in peace Steve.
