Bindi & Robert Irwin
Bindi Irwin was just 8 years old when her "superhero" died. She has starred in Return to Nim's Island, Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove, and Bindi The Jungle Girl, among other shows. Recently, she won Dancing With The Stars.
Her father, Steve Irwin, who was the star of The Crocodile Hunter Diaries, died in 2006 from a stingray barb while setting up for filming ocean reef footage. It was not only a shocking loss for his family, but for his many fans worldwide.
In an interview with People Magazine, Bindi shared about her healing, "I think everyone is given those couple of people in life, whether they are related to you or not, that will stand by you no matter what. You have to treasure them because they come into your life for a reason. Sometimes you do just have to let go and be supported."
Bindi and Robert's dad was an incredible man and loved by many, but it was his work with animals on his shows and his Australia Zoo programs that really made a difference in educating people about caring for nature and our planet's animals.
Today, Bindi and Robert, with their mom Terry, are working to keep his legacy alive with their Wildlife Warriors foundation.
Before they were one of the most famous families on television and beyond, the Kardashian siblings went through the loss of their dad Robert.

Prince William Duke of Cambridge & Prince Henry of Wales (aka Prince Harry)
Prince William and Prince Harry are the grandsons of the Queen of England and one would think they had everything they wanted, including a loving mother, the famously beautiful and kind Princess Diana.
Their mother was a powerful crusader for helping people suffering from AIDS and people being harmed by landmines in war-torn countries.
In 2011, she was killed in a car crash with paparazzi chasing her car for a photo. Prince William was 15 and Prince Harry was 11. People from all over the world lined the streets of England to pay their respects at her funeral procession.
Prince William became Royal Patron of the Child Bereavement Charity and said in a speech "I took on this role because I know what it is like to lose someone you love so much....There is a sense of profound shock and disbelief that this could ever happen to you... Life is altered as you know it, and not a day goes past without you thinking about the one you have lost.
However, I also know that over time it is possible to learn to live with what has happened and, with the passing of years, to retain or rediscover cherished memories."
Following in their mother's brave footsteps, Prince William and Prince Harry have gone on to create a Charitable Foundation to generate millions of pounds (dollars) to support veterans of the Armed Forces as well as to help needy young people in poverty stricken villages in Africa.
