Please keep the Tidwells in your prayers.

Yesterday afternoon a very dear little girl was killed in a tragic horse riding accident her name was Shania Tidwell daughter of Shannon Tidwell of Alamogordo, NM.
 
Shania was care flighted to the hopital here in El Paso but was pronunced dead upon arrival.
 
This is the saddest thing I believe I have ever witnessed sitting at the hospital with Shannon and her family, and prayer for Shannon to be okay with time and help from the lord her family and friends.
 
Shannon trains barrel horses, goes to futurties and pro rodeos she is a very dear friend to anyone who knows her.

Let us be reminded of what Captain John Parker told his army at Lexington Green, the place where the War for Independence began in 1775. He said, “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.

We got the devistating news about Shania on Friday afternoon. She and her mother Shannon were at barrel races that my daughters, grandaughter and I went to most every week end. They were indeed a team!

If you never saw Shania compete you missed an upcoming champion and a little horse woman! If you never saw her ear to ear smile when she made a good run you missed something heart warming! Shannon was always at the gate to share her joy!

I've watched her share the excitment of a good run made by her competitors but she was a winner everytime in her own heart!

This child touched my life in a way I hadn't realized. I ask that each of you take time to pray for Shannon, her mom and the rest of the family today.

I am praying that God will give this family the understanding and strength to meet each day. That their hearts be filled with comfort.

Radiant, Loving, Friend, Angelic, Talent--We are all going to miss Shania

The death of Shania was a tragedy! When I was on the phone when she passed I could do nothing but cry. Shannon, I know it will take time. I  know there is nothing to be said to ease your pain just know we love you. Keep in mind she is in heaven walking down the streets of gold. If you need anything just let us know....Jennifer Barney
