Recuerda que debes morir.

A memento mori (Latin ‘remember that you must die’) is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.

“The expression ‘memento mori’ developed with the growth of Christianity, which emphasized Heaven, Hell, and salvation of the soul in the afterlife.”

Shouldn’t this be “recuerdes”, since it’s the informal second person imperative (informal indicated by “debes”)?

No, only in the negative: “no recuerdes”.
