this is a combination lateral puzzle and neologism. You need to both figure out what the neologism is and solve the puzzle. True story except that the names have been changed.

Sarah's life was saved because she pibled. Jane died. Her family pibled. Sarah was sad, but not as sad as she would be if Jane's family didn't pible.

an accident? murder? It could be defined as this. suicide? from a heart condition? cancer? other disease? This might have been the direct cause.

Can babies pible? No Is pibling mostly a mental activity? A physical activity? Not really either. does it involve speaking? It could.

Is it one particular puzzle that would help? A recent one? (Let's define recent to be last 3 months). Or is it a general "style of your puzzles" that would help.

Since this has no action in 10 days and I don't really like it, I'm just going to spoil

****SPOILER****

Pible means to contact everyone in the phone book who has a certain last name. Of course, Sarah is Hansi Redlich from my previous puzzle, who contacted every Redlich in the New York City phone book in the hopes that one would get her out of Austria before World War II. My great-grandmother Pauline Redlich (no relation) did just that, likely saving her from the Holocaust. Years later, Pauline died, and her family wanted to let Hansi know. They didn't know how to reach her, so they contacted every Redlich in the New York City phone book until they found her. She was sad that Pauline had died, given what she had done for her, but not as sad as she would be if Pauline's family hadn't told her and she had found out later on her own, since at least this showed they cared about her.
