Melbourne (ANI): Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin"s widow Terri misses him a lot, especially in the bed. Speaking to Times about life after her husband"s death, Terri said though it has been a year since Irwin"s tragic demise, she finds it difficult to cope with the loss.
"He was hot in the cot and I miss him desperately," News.com,au quoted her, as telling the newspaper. "In some ways I miss him more now, because it hits me that he's not coming home," she said.
The 43-year-old also said that the Oz wildlife expert was a 'lucky find" for her because he was sensitive and strong at the same time. "He was a lucky find," she said. "If you find a macho guy, he's usually kind of an ass; and if you find a sensitive guy he's usually kind of a wimp. "To get someone who is sensitive, yet strong ... Steve was that," she said.
In her book" Steve and Me: My Life With The Crocodile Hunter", which is scheduled to be published next month, she talks about how she waits for her hubby to walk into the house through the front door.
Terri also said that she has kept a few things in memory of her husband died after being fatally pierced in the chest by a stingray barb in September last year.
"His sarong still hangs on the bed," Terri writes. "His toothbrush is in the bathroom but the reality is sinking in more and more." Terri said she has "a lot of heart-to-heart" talks with daughter Bindi, 9, to get over with her father's death.
She adds that her three-year-old son bappi lahiri,robert is "like a pitiful puppy and still waits patiently for his daddy to come home from heaven". "Some nights he sits in the bath and cries," Terri writes. "'I want my daddy', he says, over and over. It tears my heart out," she added.
