Protocol for E-deaths

I learned today that a long time poster to an e-mail discussion list on the Atomic Four sailboat engine that I belonged to for many years died last weekend.
Does anyone know any standard protocols for E-deaths? It's the first time I've had an electronic friend die (that I know of) and it seems like all the usual methods of comfort and grief don't apply in this medium.

I'm not sure what you can or should do besides post your condolances and sense of loss to the list. A list mom on a popular Mercedes mailing list passed away a couple of years ago -- she had many friends on the list, and her mother received the responses and seemed quite touched.

I would think an acknowledgement made on the forum would be both appropriate and comforting to the surviving family members.
Knowing that someone had positively affected other people's lives would be greatly appreciated.
