About Petrus Stephanus van der Merwe

Oupa Van as we lovingly called him, was a man of God. He loved our grandmother dearly, and accepted her children, and grand children as his own. He was always making jokes, and laughing. He loved the Van der Merwe joke books.

I was 11 years old before I realised that he was not my genetic grandfather. We loved him dearly, with our hearts and souls.He died of stomach cancer in Salisbury, then Rhodesia.
