How to notify ppl online that you are no longer there?

Found out recently that an online friend had passed away 6 or 7 months ago. His real life relationships did not crossover w/ his online ones. What would be a good system to put in place in case I face a situation like this?

I know there are a few people that I have wondered if they just cut off contact/moved on with their life/ or died over the years and I would like to remedy that situation for friends.
The problem being that no one who has access to my computer here in person is computer savy enough to navigate to things like gmail or understand how to initiate a mass email or what the Drafts folder would be. They can manage turning it on just barely.
As well what would be the best way to give people access to online accounts, banking etc and passwords? I wouldn't want to give people these while I am still around for matters of privacy but would need them to know about them I suppose to transfer funds from online only banks and to delete accounts such as mefi, facebook, etc. Giving website tasks to online friends and step by step instructions to real life people?
I am just wondering in these modern times when some of our best friends can be people who we have never met what is the best system that could be put in place so that all would get notification.
