Ten years after they lost their beloved son, Steve Irwin's parents found a shocking note that their son left behind.
Steve's father Bob was researching around his home for his upcoming memoir when he discovered the unopened letter. It was reportedly tucked away in a book. And it was addressed to his parents.
Written by Steve when he was 32 years old, the letter reveals an "unfortunate thing" that he needed to get off his chest--and that he wanted to make right immediately.
The note read,
"Dear Dad and Mum, Probably one of the most unfortunate things in a 'Blokes Life' is that it takes over 30 years to realize how essential you have been to building [SIC] my character, my ethics and most importantly my 'HAPPINESS.'
At 32, I am finally starting to figure it out, in good time and in bad, you were there. [Your] strength and endurance to raise me will not go unrewarded. My love for you is my strength!
For the rest of my life I will reflect on the unbelievably GREAT times we've shared and will continue to share. You're my best friends!
Thank you, Steve."

What a beautiful way to truly leave a mark to remember.
