Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Good morning and Merry Christmas Jigidi Friends all over the world. Thank you for being an important part of my life through the years.

I have loved solving all the creative and interesting puzzles here. I have really enjoyed creating my jeweled collages for you, and most of all I have enjoyed making friends with so many people from so many parts of the world. I have enjoyed sharing weather reports, cultural differences, words, foods and customs. It has been a safe, happy place for me.

I thought it was time to let all my friends now I am quite "not well" and life is getting hard as it winds down. I am in end of life cancer. I haven't battled it or died from it, I have lived, and I mean lived through it. I have chosen not to share my cancer through the years with friends or family because I chose not to let it define me or who I am.

I have to leave home and the computer I am taking with me doesn't have my puzzle making program on it and Picasa is unavailable for download anymore, so I can't make new ones. I am going to transfer some puzzles I already have done and will try to post them after the first of the new year when I am settled in my "new home."

I will continue to post my simple puzzles on my Pinknblack puzzle page, as they are simple, non-collage puzzles and I have hundreds all ready to post.

Thank you for all the wonderful posts through the years, I have enjoyed and appreciated each and everyone. Thank you for the hundreds and hundreds of hours of puzzle fun and friendship.

Merry Christmas and Love to All, Grandma Pegs.

I feel overwhelmed by all the love and support given below. I am at a loss for words. Please know I have read each and have appreciated every single, kind word written from your hearts to mine. I will try to post as often as I can. My Pinknblack puzzles are so much easier to create, so I post there much more often. In the meantime I wish you all a Happy New Year, much better than 2020!!!

I bet you missed my Christmas message below. :))

Bravo Dbird, for winning the battle against cancer :-)

You will give other cancer patients hope of winning their battles against cancer, too.


@grandmapegs

Grandma Pegs, I will continue to pray for you. Stay strong, my friend.

Best regards,
Jason.

Dear Grandma Pegs,
Many many prayers for you! I'm a cancer survivor, too. I send my hope and courage and blessings to you! DBIRD

Dear Grandma Pegs,

Yesterday, I left my thoughts, hopes and prayers for you at the 100 pieces of the puzzle that you have posted on the same day as this one.

Today, I would like to say that you are a very courageous lady who fought a good battle with cancer.

You will be in good hands and will be well taken care of at your new home.

I will continue to pray for you.

Have a Blessed Christmas.

Best regards,
Jason.

My heart is sending love to you, Peg, as I reread these posts with tears in my eyes. Dotty

I shall miss you Pegs and your brooch puzzles but look forward to continuing to see you posting on your Pinknblack page . . . ;-)
I have a lot to thank you for as you were one of the first people to reach out to me when I started posting on Jigidi in 2012. You both encouraged and inspired me.

I am relieved to see that you will not be on your own for the remainder of your journey and that you will be able to live life and beyond in much the same way that we have come to know and love you for. Take care and as many here have already said thank you . . . Su ❤️❤️❤️

Oh, Peg. I'm so sorry to hear this news. You are a very stoic character! To have decided to focus on life and living, rather than your diagnosis, is brave and would have meant that you could make the most of each day. I hope that all goes well in your new home. And thank you for sharing so many stories, and beautiful art with us over the years. I think you have touched many people, and have left an amazing legacy in those who you have shown how to express themselves artistically. Thank you for making the world a more beautiful place. ❤❤❤

@jasonchung2
Hello jason,

YEAH! Another set of Christmas puzzles from Grandmapegs!! Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Peg, May God bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. Amen. I send you love.

Peg, I'm so sad to read you are not well, I find it hard to express how I feel for you but know you will be in my thoughts, over the years I loved your art work with the children and your jewelry, I did solve some of your puzzles some time ago on Pinknblack but I didn't know pinknblack was your profile.
Love your Christmas tree brooch, it's beautiful. Thank you Peg.
Merry Christmas!
Love and hugs.... Shirley ❤️

Dear @grandmapegs: Bless you and thank you for all your wonderful puzzles. I've loved working with your beautiful broaches. You are a brave and wise soul. Know that I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers--as will, no doubt, many others. ❤️

irisriver

Sending you a huge hug! Just know you are cared about and loved by many here on Jigidi.♥♥♥

Peg, after reading your news I find myself inadequately able to express my sadness for you. I do think it was wonderful of you to have continued to live, as you mentioned.

Hugs. ❤️

Grandmapegs - I was so happy when I saw you'd posted some new puzzles!
And then I read your post ... and cried. I feel so helpless, so sad that something so devastating is happening to you. Words can't adequately express what I'm feeling. You were the first person I connected with on Jigidi. We shared many life stories but never did you share, nor dwell on, your own illness. I never knew. I thought your absence was that life was so busy with your granddaughter and little one living with you. I never did your pink n black puzzles, maybe if I had I'd have had more of an understanding about your absence from posting my favourite puzzles.
Dear Grandmapegs - I am sending you the biggest virtual hug across the oceans, thank you for being part of my Jigidi life, you are the most amazing, caring and thoughtful person. God Bless. ❤️

Dear Peg, I'm at a loss to what to say. You have been in my prayers for such a long time. I often thought of you when you were missing for a few years and delighted when you came back. I understand now why you gave up the teaching. I never connected you with pinknblack whose puzzles have been a delight for me ever since I joined Jigidi. I missed her and was glad to see her (you) back and read her mentioning end stage cancer. I do solve those small puzzles when they are about 30 or fewer pieces. But I do love looking at all of them.

Peg it's so hard to type with tears in my eyes and spilling out. Thank you for all your puzzles. I used to love it too when you showed your student's work. You know I'm not into jewelry but do look at and appreciate your work and solve the smaller ones. This Christmas tree is beautiful. Thank you. Merry Christmas to you. Blessings. Hold tight to your Savior. Love you. ((((HUGS))))
