To the Editor:
The city of Southport has lost a good and kind person, Jerry Dove.
Jerry was a friend for about 20 years, and was a man of character who loved his Lord and at short notice could give the most heartfelt prayers one could hear. He loved his fellow man and was always there to help.
Jerry served this section of North Carolina as a Highway Patrolman, a Southport officer, and Southport Police Chief and Mayor. When needed he stepped up to the plate.
Jerry will be missed but he is with the Lord he served so faithfully.
