Dreaming that a loved one has passed away can be deeply unsettling, but it's important to remember that dreams often speak in symbols. This kind of dream could imply that you're missing a certain characteristic or quality that the departed person possessed. Alternatively, it might signify that your connection with that individual has changed or ended. If you're dreaming of a parent or child's death, consider this as a symbol of evolving relationships or new stages in life.
