Susan Helen "Honey" Crum Wold

An incredibly sweet little girl. An intricate, complicated, intelligent, and elegant woman and mother. She set her standards high for herself - and for those she loved.

A happy little girl. She told me so many stories about her days growing up in Scobey - both in town and on the farm. One of my favorites was her memory of having learned a new word: "snicker." She was little - five, six, seven. I'm not sure just how old, but the word in her mouth made her laugh. (It still makes me laugh to think of her.) So she ran outside and hid inside the hedge in front of the house, so she could say it out loud and snicker to her heart's content. Her father was sitting on the porch, reading the paper. And she would poke her head out of the bushes and whisper "snicker - snicker snicker snicker" then collapse in giggles on the ground. He never knew she was there - or at least he never let on that he did. Oh, Honey. You happy, little girl who loved to laugh... you never lost your love of words. In fact, nearly to the end you were still able to read upside down. Words. Thank you for making me learn to use a dictionary. You were right, Susan Helen Honey Crum.

She had a sense of humor that never left her  - we could make her laugh to the end. And through her long life, she never stopped either surprising or amazing us.

Thank you, Mom, for sharing life with us.
