There is a part of Murai-san's message, that may be worth reposting:

The family is planning a memorial service at Rinkai Saijo (Tokyo, Japan on November 6th from 
6:00pm, and a funeral service the following day on November 7th from 
11:00am.  We have received warm requests from many wishing if they can 
be of any help.  We are presently coordinating efforts with Itojunâs 
family to see how we may be of assistance during this difficult time. On 
behalf of the Internet community we will be arranging for flowers to be 
sent, but as many of Itojunâs close colleagues may be overseas, we 
understand it may be difficult to attend or arrange for flowers from 
abroad. As an alternative suggestion we would like to accept warm 
messages to the family and/or memorable events with Itojun that you may 
want to share. We will deliver these messages to Itojun at the memorial 
and funeral service. Please send these messages to 
[email protected]
