What do I do when a person is eligible for COBRA insurance but has passed away before getting papers and signing up?

I have a relative who has passed away, but has passed while being eligible for COBRA but has only received the paperwork after their death. In the time period after losing coverage from employment, significant medical expenses were incurred. Who applies for COBRA now? Is the executor allowed to sign up for COBRA on the deceased behalf?
