    MESSER of indiana in the house of representatives Tuesday, March 19, 2013 Mr. MESSER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the memory of a young constituent, Samantha Rae Hansen of Holton, Indiana.

    Samantha attended South Ripley High School and actively participated in a number of school clubs, including science, Spanish, and band. She was a school leader on the student council and served as president of the FFA and Country Critters 4-H club. Along with her family, she also was a member of the First Southern Baptist Church in Versailles, participating in the church choir.

    We mourn a life that ended too soon and pray for understanding and comfort for family members and those in our community who knew and loved Samantha. While in times of turmoil we struggle to understand the unexplainable, may we find peace and joy in our religious faith and the memories of time shared with those we love.

    Samantha will be forever remembered as a friend of her community. I ask the citizens of the 6th Congressional District to join me in keeping her parents, Matthew and Jenny Wahl Hansen, sisters, Amanda and Nikki, and the entire extended Hansen family in our thoughts and prayers.
