It is always possible for deceased loved ones to visit us in our dreams. It’s actually an ideal place for them to make contact. For one, you are in a relaxed state so it’s easier for them to get your attention. For another, you are disconnected from the physical and more connected to your subconscious and/or superconscious if you are a lucid dreamer. And lastly, dreams are sort of the mid-ground between here and there so it’s like meeting in the middle.
