No where in Scripture is it shown that anyone talked to someone dead or may or may not be in Heaven, aside from Christ.
I'm sorry, but your statement is incorrect. Scripture clearly shows us that those in heaven are aware of the prayers of those of us on earth. For example, see Revelation 5:8, where John informs us that saints in heaven offer our prayers to God under the form of "golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints." Obviously if the saints are in heaven offering our prayers to God, they are aware of our prayers. They are aware of our petitions and present them to God by interceding for us.

(The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? (1 Cor. 10:16))
For example, see Revelation 5:8, where John informs us that saints in heaven offer our prayers to God under the form of "golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints."
It says 24 elders and 4 beasts...It says the prayers are oders...
But somehow you take that to mean Mary, and your hundreds and thousands of saints and claim it as some sort of proof text...Amazing...

(I don't understand all that I know...)
Prayers of the saints refer to US, those who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. WE are the saints.
