She disappeared back in February, and I have heard nothing since. No attempts to contact her or find out what happened to her have been successful. The only likely conclusion is that she's passed on, in one way or another. She loved the internet too much to stop posting, and she was even able to contact me from inside a psych ward. I called the police in the town she was living in, and there are no arrest records.
I miss you, pretty girl. You had a good heart, and you were incredibly talented. I could talk to you about my illness and know that you understood. I will not forget you, and I hope Timothy (her son) and Rob (her fiancé) know how much you loved them. I also loved you, and I am proud to say I was your friend.
In memoriam, I give you several of Rei's most beautiful art pieces:

Rest in peace, dear girl, wherever you are.
