While working on a soon-to-be-released memoir about his son, Bob Irwin stumbled upon a long-lost letter written by the late wildlife expert and TV personality Steve Irwin.

“At 32 I am finally starting to figure it out,” Irwin wrote in the emotional note. “In good times and in bad, you were there; [your] strength and endurance to raise me will not go unrewarded. My love for you is my strength!”
According to Fox News, Irwin concluded the letter by calling his parents his “best friends!”.
He wrote the heart-felt note four years before the birth of his daughter, Bindi. Bob Irwin said it fell out of a book when he was researching for his memoir, “”The Last Crocodile Hunter.”
Sunday, Sept. 4 will mark the 10th anniversary of Steve Irwin’s death. He was killed by a stingray while filming a documentary off the coast of Australia.
