Ya know, now that you mention it, I don't think that there is anything wrong
with having a little talk with Christ.  The gratitude I am certain we all
feel for Christ and what He did for us is well beyond anything that I can
express in words.  And how about talking with your mother or father or
spouse or whatever who has left this mortal estate?  Or what about thanking
Alma for the wonderful example he was and is for you?

I would also hazard to guess that many of us have thought very much about
Christ and have even spoken directly to Him during the Sacrament prayer.  It
would be hard not to, given our promise to always remember Him.

It would seem strange to me indeed if one were ever penalized for expressing
the sincere thoughts they have for these people.
