first time posting...
Hi all. I recently found this website while googling dream interpretation. This is my first time posting and I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a recent emotional dream I had...
Some background information: I was extremely close to my maternal grandfather. I lived with him for the majority of his time on this Earth. When I was 12 years old, I came home from school with my mother and found him expired in his bed. The last conversation with him was very short, just a "talk to you later". He was not sick during his last few days, he's death was very sudden and devistating.
Last week, I had an extremely emotional dream about my grandfather. The preceding events are hazy... but the part with my grandfather is vivid and unforgetable.
I was driving in a car and stopped at a mall, for whatever reason. While walking through the mall, my grandfather approached me. He was in a motorized wheelchair. He looked so sick - ghostly pale, thin (anorexic looking), with chest tubes coming out of him. I told him how much I missed him and I didn't want him to leave again. He told me he was okay with dying and that everything was okay; as if he was still alive, and was going to die soon. I was sobbing in the dream, holding onto him.
I awoke right after that, crying. Ever since having this dream I fall asleep hoping to see him again.
My mother says she sees him frequently in her dreams, but this is the first and only time I've ever have seen him.
Can someone shed some light on this? I'm looking for any insight.

Welcome to the forum . Many people do see a passed on loved one in a dream . I do not think your grand father would appear to you as you saw him . Most dreams are just the mind replaying the days events . We all go out of body during certain parts of sleep , and sometimes meet dead loved ones , and remember it as a dream . desert rat

I too, don't think he would appear to you in a way to upset you.
I have lost both of my parents to cancer, my Dad two years ago and my Mom just last month. They both died at age 83.
I have since met both of them in dreams, and the dreams were very happy and pleasant. They appeared in good health, and both of them were in their 30s or 40s. I was able to touch them and get real-feeling hugs, and woke up much comforted. They were very short dreams, and basically just gave me the strong feeling message that they were OK.
I think your dream was expressing the distress you felt at not really being able to say goodbye when he passed so suddenly, and that maybe part of you felt that he should have appeared sick first.
I hope you get to really "meet" him sometime soon in another dream, and see that he is really all right.
