Some 12 years after the shocking death of crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, her daughter Bindi has opened herself to how the family still feels the loss, every single day.
Bindi was only eight years old, and her brother Robert was just two, when the wildlife documentary was attacked by a stingray while filming the Ocean's Deadliest.
Steve was known internationally as The Crocodile Hunter and it was an outbreak of grief all over the world when he died, aged just 44 years.
The heart of losing their father when they were so young is still difficult to deal with on a daily basis, Bindi said.
Talking to people, she said, "I remember people coming up to me and saying," I'm sorry for your loss, dear. Time heals all wounds. "But that's just not true.
Bindi said it has been a difficult childhood and that she never comes across the loss of her father.
She said, "It's like losing part of your heart, and when you've lost it, you'll never get it back."
She now hopes to make her dad proud by continuing her environmental work with Robert, who is now 15, and Mother Terri, 54.
Bindi said they were trying to do this every day and, "Try every day to make him proud and follow in his footsteps", and her hope is where Steve has gone on to mean he thinks, "Yes! You did well! "
