To dream of seeing dead loved ones who actually died in real life most likely reflect an aspect of your personality based on your most honest feelings about them. The fact that they are dead is most likely irrelevant unless it's the most powerful quality about them.

If loved ones have recently passed away or you've been spending a lot of time remembering them then they may represent your grief or desire to be with them again.
