IN MEMORIAM: Thina Hansen

Mrs. Thina Hansen, wife of John Hansen and mother of Diana Hansen-Juchno and Shane Hansen, passed away quietly Saturday, surrounded by family. A longtime circus performer with the Rolling Diamonds as well as active member of Showfolks of Sarasota, she was a very loving grandmother to J.R., Olivia, Michael, Madison and Ella.

A Celebration of Life is being planned for December.

A wonderful woman; she will be missed.

Now that I am gone,
remember me with smiles and laughter.
And if you need to cry,
cry with your brother or sister
who walks in grief beside you.
And when you need me,
put your arms around anyone
and give to them what you need to give to me.
There are so many who need so much.
I want to leave you something --
something much better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I've known
or helped in some special way.
Let me live in your heart
as well as in your mind.
You can love me most
by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,
by embracing them and living in their love.
Love does not die, people do.
So, when all that's left of me is love,
give me away as best you can.
