The winner of last night's finale of America's Got Talent is Neal Boyd, a man Edward knew and graduated high school with. What an exciting thing for him! You can't help but be happy for someone who has worked for years and years at his dream, and it has just turn into a rewarding reality.
Although we never watched the show, we've checked in a couple of times to see if he was still in the competition. Elizabeth, especially, would ask for an update every so often. This morning I told her the big news that he won. She gasped and cheered at his accomplishment. I told her how he has mentioned Sikeston, Edward's hometown, throughout the competition, and he made mention of it again last night for the finale. She then excitedly asked, "Did he say Daddy's name too?!!?!?" No, darling daughter, he forgot to mention Daddy in all his excitement.
