In the Agpeya, we quote the psalms in the latanies of the Compline Prayer and we say,
"... among the dead, no one can remember, nor do those in Hades offer thanks..."
I am perplexed by this saying. I thought that the dead CAN remember, as illustrated by the Rich Man Vs. Lazarus. Christ said that the rich ased Abraham to send Lazarus to witness to his brothers on Earth. He remembered his brothers and cared for them and had thoughts about them even while in Hades.
How is it then that "among the dead, no one can remember"?
