Supposedly when anyone died (before the Crucifixion of Christ Jesus) their souls rested in Abraham's bosom until the passion and the resurrection.

Jesus talks about the place the dead went to before His death on the cross. It was called Hades or Sheol, basically the place of the dead. But the unrighteous went to a place of torment (not yet hell--that is the future). And those who died in faith, the righteous went to a place of peace called Abraham's bosom. Their bodies sleep but their souls are awake.
Luke 16:20-31 describes a beggar who went to Abraham's bosom and a rich man who went to the place of torment. It shows that they can see each other, but they are separated by a great chasm. Also this passage shows that they cannot return to earth to communicate with the living. When Jesus died, He went there and He led those who died in the faith, the righteous into the pressence of God, because He had paid the price for their sins!!!
