"Personally - Joost gave me the greatest gift of my life - because he was the father of my children. Even though we were separated, he was in our life on a daily basis right to the end and we shared extraordinary memories."

Amor is set to give a speech at the memorial where people have been asked to wear the Springbok rugby jersey.

Joost died on Monday after a long battle with a form of motor neuron disease.
