Bob Irwin shared the letter for the first time in The Last Crocodile Hunter: A Father and Son Legacy, which he penned to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his son's death.
Irwin wrote the note in 1998, telling his parents: "Probably one of the most unfortunate things in a 'Bloke's Life' is that it takes over 30 years to realise how essential you have been to build my character, my ethics and, most importantly, my HAPPINESS."
He continued, "At 32, I am finally starting to figure it out. In good times and in bad, you were there. Your strength and endurance to raise me will not go unrewarded. My love for you is my strength!"
Irwin added, "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!"
