Can I pray to a dead person?

A woman died on September 11, 2001. I went through the list of the survivors and this woman’s personality was so close to mine that I felt immediately attached to her and I feel sadden by her lost, yet I feel God has chosen her to be close to me. How can I pray for her intercession? How can I pray for this through Christ?
