Berdine bids farewell to Dundee

It is with a heavy heart, fond memories and a new adventure awaiting her, that Berdine Prinsloo has left Dundee.

Berdine, who for the past 30 years has called Dundee home, has moved to Mthatha in the Eastern Cape with her fiancé, Justin Andrew.

Berdine originally moved to Dundee from East London with her ex-husband and is excited about the prospect of moving closer to home. However, excited though she is, the thought of leaving Dundee is heartsore. “I’ve grown to love this place and it is sad to leave, but I made very special friends here and I won’t be saying goodbye for good.”

The friendliness of the people in the area was one of the things that Berdine said she would miss most and she paid special mention to two friends who she would miss dearly, Dalene Steytler and Dolly Bradbury.
“Dalene was more than a boss to me. I spent 14 years at Mpati Pharmacy and she was always there for me. Her mother, Aunty Hes, was like the mother I never had,” she said.

“Dolly and I go back years and she was always there when I needed someone,” Berdine added.
She also paid special tribute to her son and daughter, Natasha and Donovan, who brought her through a lot of pain and have given her their blessings to now be truly happy. She also thanked Craig Owen and Jovan Coetzer for all their support and her colleagues at Mpati Pharmacy for the years of teamwork.

Berdine and Justin were childhood sweethearts who sadly lost contact after she got married and moved to Dundee. However, all was not lost. Fate had other plans in store for them and finding one another again, after all these years, they have rekindled their romance and will be starting a life together.

“I’m very excited. We were meant to be together. When you meet your soulmate for the second time, you don’t let them get away.” On Friday evening, Justin proposed and Berdine said yes. They left Dundee last Sunday morning to start their lives anew.
