Hi Everyone,

Im deeply moved and honoured by your kind words and memories.
As Lily said when did I ever have time to play, I was busy pm'ing everyone.

I just want you all to know that I appreciate your thoughts, prayers and words.
I m not doing as well as I wish I was <yeah understatement. But its not awful.
I have my friend and my sister here and I m just um spending time with them and
sort of dotting i's and crossing t's.

I miss playing. I cant play anymore. So Stephen even though there is only a week or so left on my membership could you possibly do what I asked earlier? Thanks. And Stephen?
You did good here. You created a puzzle site and built a family and friends here.
Good job kiddo! And my sincerest thanks for all you did for me and putting up with so much.

Lily knows of course how I feel about her and I will say my private goodbye to her everyone else..
The chat box is a wonderful place to get to know people. Dont be shy. We dont bite.
Oh we might swear and bitch every now and then but if you need help or have a question
best place to go is there.
This game was my light in a very bad time of my life. Its continued to burn ever since.
Not just the people but the pure satisfaction of sitting and solving for hours and realizing
I could do something that was so much fun and so challenging and yet do it well...
that was what kept a smile on my face and kindled the humour.
The love of a game.
Then the people ..these wonderfully, funny, kind, wacky Cryptedians and Cryptediennes.
My friends my co competitors my acquaintances. Sometimes coming on very late at night and just seeing a name that I recognized..had never even spoken to, was comforting.
To all I never had a chance to speak to, thankyou for the competition.
And to all who I did get a chance to know and like and love, thank you for being my friends.

To quote...
"Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance"

Fricking country songs, sometimes they just have the best words.

errr..koff koff..shuffles um, i do plan to still go to chat
so its not like bye bye totally more like a bye bye to competing type thing.
LOL er yeah i know im terrible at the whole so long stuff.
so see ya in the chatbox

I've been doing the puzzles here for a couple of years. I'm kind of an introvert, so I haven't posted too much here, and I've just started posting occasionally on the chat box.

Someone below (sorry, I forget who) said, Pootie was their hero. She is mine too. When I first read about her illness, I found her scores and her 100% solve rate, even more spectacular. Then I started checking the chat box more often for news. I was so amazed to see Pootie there with a cheerful "face" chatting and offering advice.

You are an amazing person, Donna. I have never in real life met anyone quite like you. You are my hero.

Default your annoying lil bro

I just want to share something really beautiful with you. I remember listening to this 28 years ago with this violist named Marcie. At the time, it seemed like the most mellifluous thing we'd ever heard. The words are a poem by Hermann Hesse. It makes me happy whenever I hear it. If I'm lucky, it'll make you happy, too.

I actually have Jessye Norman's version of this.
The above is a rudimentary translation.
However the meaning is clear
and extremely thoughtful.

You arent that annoying, just sometimes. And I admire your game play
and will stand up to anyone, as a big sister should, who accuses you of anything
but exemplary solving abilities.

And yes BS, Im smiling. Thank you.

Hugs Joseph
Your Big sis, Donna
