Death has a way of depriving us of making new memories; however, irrespective of the loss, we can always remember our loved ones. Bindi Irwin paid tribute to her dad on his birthday saying:

"Dad, Today is your birthday. I had an extra-strong cup of tea just how you liked it. I hugged Mum for you and told her how much we love her."

The 21-year-old then explained all the activities she and her brother Robert did, which included walking in their dad's office and watching his favorite documentary. She concluded the caption saying:

"Today and every day, I miss you and love you beyond description. You're always with me. ❤️"

The picture Bindi posted showed her father wearing an "Australia Zoo" shirt while holding a porcupine as he smiled down at her younger self.

The father and daughter looked happy and carefree in the throwback picture, and one can only imagine how close the duo was before his passing.

The loss of their father has not deterred them from keeping up his legacy.

Similarly, Bindi's brother Robert also posted a throwback picture of the entire family resting on a rock while smiling at the camera. He captioned his photo succinctly with the words "Family Always."

Steve's wife Terri also wished her husband a happy birthday via Twitter, stating that the crocodile hunter would have been 58 years of age if he were alive. She said:

"While my heart aches missing him every day, I'm determined to celebrate what he loved the most."

Fans and lovers of the Irwin family also wished the former wildlife enthusiast a posthumous birthday while urging the family to keep holding on and doing their best.

Steve, who was famous for his wildlife enthusiasm and for running the Australia Zoo, died in 2006 when he was attacked and killed by a stingray while shooting a documentary called "Ocean's Deadliest."

At the time of his death, his daughter Bindi was just eight years old, and Robert was barely three. However, the loss of their father has not deterred them from keeping up his legacy.

Bindi, who is set to get married to her lover this year, has expressed that her dad is her hero, and in as much as she wanted him to walk her down the aisle, she was glad her brother Robert would be able to do it instead.

With the fire raging and destroying most parts of Australia, the Irwins have opened their home and zoo to house animals in danger and help those with burns recover.
