Evie Clair has made the decision to return and compete in the finals of America’s Got Talent after being given the option from Simon to come back next season.
We are happy to be back in LA with the remaining cast, crew and staff who have become like a second family to us this past year.
I was sitting in the Dolby Theater this morning when Malcom, the script writer for America’s Got Talent, gave me this letter with his condolences.
Death is Nothing at All
By Henry Scott-Holland
“Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.
Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.
All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!”
I loved these words and believe that he is near. I speak to him often and have felt him close.
Porter is at his first homecoming dance tonight and I’m missing him but happy that he will soon join me here in LA.
My cute little girls are being well cared for by grandparents and aunts and friends who love them dearly and I’m happy that they will also be able join us soon.
Some big AGT plans are in the works for both Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. You will not want to miss the finale so keep your schedules open and start planning parties to make sure your friends see it too.
