I dreamt that I was talking a shower I’m the dark and my hair was in my face. I couldn’t see…finally I peeked out the curtain and the bathroom was long and spooky. I couldn’t move and called out for my brother. He answered but did not come. I fell and woke up. It was scary. What did it mean?

I had a dream a night ago that took place in my old school’s cafeteria. Keep in mind, I graduated in 2010. In my dream, my older brother who died in 2014, was there, behind a counter. I showed him my books I have published and he was proud of me.
When he was alive, he used to call and encourage my siblings and I to make something of ourselves and not give up, make him proud. Unfortunately, I never got to tell him I published my first book in 2014 because he died in February, I published my book in September.
I keep hoping that he is/would be proud of me, but I have no way of knowing.

I dreamed of my younger brother who died 1/6/14. He, my older brother and mom were in my kitchen talking and laughing. He looked strong. He was drinking milk and telling us a story like he used to. In the dream I asked if he was really there, was I the only one who saw him. They both said yes he was there. I was the only amazed.
