I know how much you love me, as much as I love you.
And each time you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand.
So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart.
For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a beautiful little girl.

Shelby Tudhope passed away in a tragic accident on August 15, 2009. Shelby was a student with us for five years and rode several of our horses, but her favorite was Pooh. We will always remember her smile when she trotted and took trail rides.

God bless you Shelby.

Jean and Andy Tudhope asked that donations be made to Xenophon in lieu of flowers. Funds donated in Shelby’s name will be put into a scholarship fund to help needy families with tuition for lessons.

You may also leave a comment if you wish and it will be forwarded to Shelby’s parents.
