    Default Bindi Irwin on losing her dad Steve Irwin: 'That kind of sadness never goes away'



    After her father, Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin, died following a freak attack by a stingray in 2006, Bindi Irwin says well-meaning strangers kept offering the same reassurance.
    “I remember after we lost Dad, so many adults came up to me and said, ‘Honey, time heals all wounds,’ ” Bindi, who turns 16 on July 24, tells PEOPLE in this week’scover story. “That is the biggest lie you will ever hear. It doesn’t.”

    She continues, “That kind of sadness never goes away. It’s like losing a piece of your heart that you never get back.”
    Speaking in-depth for the first time about her grief, Bindi also shares how she and her mom, Terri, and 10-year-old brother, Robert, have found ways to move forward.
    “When you lose a loved one, you come to these crossroads,” says the young conservationist, who lives with her family in their home within the gates of
    Australia Zoo in Queensland. “You can take the path that leads you down the aisle of sadness, or you can say, ‘I’m never going to let this person’s memory die. I’m going to make sure everything they worked for continues.’ ”


    For Bindi, that has meant carrying on her father’s animal-focused legacy, from planning the family’s annual crocodile research trip to working with SeaWorld as a youth ambassador.

    “Every day is a new journey for me,” she says, “and I feel like in my lifetime, I’ve been blessed to experience such a lot.”

    She really has blossomed into a pretty young woman. I agree with her and admire her perseverance. Steve would be proud.

    Never thought she'd really grow into it like THAT. Very pretty. And sounds like a really interesting and strong girl.

    She seems very eloquent and intelligent. I like that's she trying to do something meaningful. I have a soft spot for her.

    I miss Steve Irwin not being on tv anymore. My son and I spent hours watching him. He was my son's hero.

    And to think that we all thought her a simple fugmuppet when really she was a Fugapillar waiting to transform. She really has surprised me.

    She has always been the spitting image of her Dad, and still is in looks and her love of nature. Steve would be very proud of his family.

    We loved this show, too. I knew something would happen to him one day,...but I figured it would be from a snake or croc.

    Me too. The fact that it happened it way it did - the sting ray piercing him in the heart -it's still mind blowing to me... (the chances of that happening).

    Nevertheless, tt's heart warming to see his children growing up to be beautiful (inside and out) adults.

    She sound very mature for 16, good for her! And she is absolutely right, all those platitudes are BS and people should just shut up instead of spewing that crap.

    Where's Grimm to say she actually doesn't like animals and her mother is forcing this lifestyle on her to make money??? Never will forget my first and only lame-ass internet pissing match on GR! 8 years later and I'm still right...

    Always loved Steve and his fam! Go Bindi!

    Where did she say that? Her comments were thoughtful and mature for a girl her age.

    She seems very mature, and she's turned out pretty too. I still find it weird to think that Steve is dead.
