My 10 year old nephew just found out that his 15 year old friend committed suicide. What online resources can I send my sister to help him work through his feelings?

They live in an isolated community that has limited Internet access (no huge downloads or videos, please). The friend lives in another isolated community and my nephew is not likely to go for the funeral. There's also a postal strike so I can't send up any books on helping kids deal with suicide, death and grief. Also, any tips on what I can do for/say to him would be greatly appreciated.
