Insurance is a complex yet important aspect of our lives. From homeowners insurance to car insurance, we don’t want to deal with it, but we need it. These necessities seem to be out of our control, and in many cases beyond our understanding. But Bobby Counts, branch owner and agent of Bobby Counts Insurance believes it doesn’t need to be like that.

This is an old story, but I heard it recently, and loved it all over again. A young man gave the first sermon of his life at my son’s church and I drove in to hear him speak and to support him and his family, whom I had long loved. He did a remarkable job, was well prepared, had studied for hours, and he seemed quite comfortable in the pulpit addressing the rather large crowd. The people responded warmly to his message.

The young man told an interesting story in his opening remarks and right away, he got and held the attention of his audience members...

Q. What are my rights if I have a common law marriage? If we get divorced, will I have the right to any property?

A. As I have said many times before, a common law marriage is no different than any other marriage. You are married. Whether you are married by a justice of the peace, a rabbi or priest, or have a common law marriage, the legal ramifications are the same.

One was surrendered to the shelter when his family lost everything during Hurricane Harvey, but he has so much love to give! One is not your usual Labrador retriever; he is calm and gentle in nature. One prefers sitting at your feet and enjoying your company, rather than chasing ducks or swimming. Don’t get us wrong — he is an active pupper who does enjoy a nice lap around the pool, and enjoys playing with his canine and human friends! A truly incredible dog, One has a giant heart full of love that he is waiting to give to a family. Could that family be yours?

OK, so life hasn’t turned out exactly like you or I wanted it to, and we are somewhat sad. Our plans simply have not been on target, or we lost the partner or significant other that would help them to be fulfilled. Money is an issue, our health questionable and we just don’t understand that. Loved ones are far away from home. The car is old and is possibly on its last leg. The house needs painting. The insurance is due. We are having a baby perhaps too soon. There is addiction in the lives of loved family members.

Several years ago, as I stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., I recalled the haunting words of Dion Dimucci’s 1968 song eulogizing Abraham Lincoln, John and Bobby Kennedy, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This simple song stirs a mournful longing and lament for these fallen leaders. The words to “Abraham, Martin and John” have been resonating through my soul as we celebrate Black History Month:
