thanks for the ping.

I would rather read FReeper comments than watch that woman wring tears out of a grief stricken widow. I loathe Walters.

My daughter and I were praying for some evidence
that Irwin was saved. But when we saw Buddhist
Monks baptize Baby Bob, our hearts just sank like
a lazy croc.

The Irwin's appear to worship the creation, rather
than the Creator.

I will hold out hope that I will see Steve in heaven.
I will continue to pray that Terry, Bindi and Bob
will come to know the One True Living God, The
Creator of heaven and earth... Jehovah.

Thank you for pinging me too. I think it's very brave of Teri to be speaking so soon after Steve's death.

They were visiting monks who happened to stop by the zoo and offered a blessing for Baby Bob.

From the Channel 9 interview with Ray Martin in Australia that aired earlier today:

Terri speaks: the pain of losing the Crocodile Hunter

Thursday September 28, 2006

Terri Irwin went into a cocoon of grief in the days after the stingray attack which ended her husband's life, with no idea of the immense public response to an accident which had torn her life apart.

"This really helps to know that so many people care . . . I love Australia . . . I'm a lucky woman," she said in an exclusive Nine Network interview as she gazed for the first time on the floral tributes outside Australia Zoo.

The heart-rending discussion with veteran journalist Ray Martin ranged over the pair's whirlwind romance 14 years ago, Steve's premonition of his own death, and Terri's feelings since the fatal accident.

"I was always worried about him diving," she said of the urgent phone call she received from her brother-in-law while conducting research in Tasmania. He told her Steve had had an accident while filming underwater.

"And I'm thinking 'don't say it, don't say it, don't say it.' But he said those three words. He said 'and he died'."

She was then faced with the task of telling her daughter Bindi, 8, and three-year-old son Robert.

"I told her exactly what had happened . . . and I said 'life is like a book and this is the next chapter'."

She said the Crocodile Hunter would have been the last person to wish harm on the animal that killed him.

"It was a complete and total accident, rays are beautiful gentle creatures," she said. "You know how you're always told not to run with scissors, and it never happens? It was just running with scissors, it was just a crazy accident, that's all."

Terri Irwin also spoke of her croc-wrangling husband's premonition he would die young.

"He had a very strong conviction he would [die young] . . . I'm grateful in a way, because we were prepared for it," she said.

She said she worried about him when she was not with him.

"He'd go to places he'd affectionately call 'Lake Malaria' ... Those kinds of things really scared me."

"I was afraid of him diving, not for the animals but for the apparatus with something going wrong.

Despite Steve's powers of intuition — demonstrated numerous times in practical situations according to his wife — he never believed a wild animal would kill him.

"I never feared for him with animals . . . he was a consummate professional," she said. "The things that were death defying were amazing to him."

The pair met 14 years ago at one of Steve's crocodile demonstrations, and according to Terri, it was love at first sight.

"It was a fairytale. You know why I'm so lucky, I knew it when I lived it. It wasn't always easy, but it was magical," Terri said, barely holding back tears.

Terri declared that neither her husband's final resting place nor the footage of his death — which she has not seen — will ever be made public.

The video shows the moment a stingray lashed its tail at Irwin, swimming in shallow water on the Great Barrier Reef, sending a serrated barb through his heart.

The incident and Irwin's subsequent death became world news and generated a massive response. Up to 300 million people around the globe watched Irwin's memorial at Australia Zoo.

Can you put them on Youtube? Rapidshare limits how many downloads you can do.

I am hoping someone else will put them on youtube after downloading - I can't get youtube to reliably accept uploads over dialup and I am limited to dialup at the moment.

If Terri agreed, then you shouldn't be so mad.

I don't watch Babs Wawa enough to dislike her, but I'll wait and see how/what she does with Terri.
