Need help with managing a memorial page on a Wordpress site.

I run a Worpress site, hosted by Dreamhost. We are about to make a memorial announcement. This will drive a lot of traffic to the site, including hundreds of comments and potentially thousands of hits. I am the only one who runs the site and I need to be prepared. What do I need to do?

I am worried about comment spam, site security (our site was recently hacked and I had to rebuild it...I'm backing everything up again right now), approving comments, speed/efficiency, as well as all the other stuff I'm probably not aware of. I'm a novice at website admin stuff, but fairly ok with computers/tech in general.
I am also in the UK, so I can't easily phone up Dreamhost and discuss changes with them.
I'm doing all this through tears, so I'm trying to cover my bases now, before the flood and even less coherent thinking.
