One of my most respected members passed away today. While I had met him only a few times very briefly, he was one of the most respected names in the field to which my network is dedicated. He has numerous posts on my site as well as many replies, etc.
Is there anything I should do as a moderator? If I remove his account it will remove all his posts. I don't know what the respectful thing to do here should be. I don't want people sending him messages through the site that his widow won't receive, etc.
I had never thought about a member dying. I'm wondering if anyone knows what the right thing to do is.
thanks for the help,
