Absolutely. Over the years I've told the full stories on various threads here. Short versions: I was in a horrible car accident when I was a teenager (16), and my mom died 4 years before that. I thought my aunt was staying by my bedside, holding my hand and singing lullabies from my babyhood. It turned out that wasn't my aunt. Also, my very sane, very rational father was walking into the ICU area where I was, and when he got to my room, saw my mother at my side, holding my hand. He said that she looked at him and nodded. He knew then that I would live. He turned around and left. Went to the lobby to compose himself. He didn't tell me this story until years later, after my aunt told me that she hadn't visited me while in ICU because only immediate family could do so.
Also, when I was 25 and a new bride, my grandmother (father's mother) died suddenly. She had always said she wouldn't go until I had gotten married. I had a very real dream of my grandmother coming to see me so she could let me know she was all right. She asked me if I had seen my mother lately. I told her, no, I hadn't. My grandmother said "She probably has gotten too young then.". Right after that statement, my husband woke me up.. He was freaked out because I was sitting up in bed and talking in my sleep...

About the 33 age.
My grandfather visits me in my dreams a couple of times a year,and he and I just talk.
He tells me how well I am doing, and to keep it up.
He always looks the way I remember him,not younger.
He told me once that he keeps this older look for me.
Which would mean that he looks different / perhaps younger in heaven, but changes back to his older self, so it's easier for me to connect with him.
My late mother on the other hand,when she visits me in my dreams, seems so much younger (around early 30s, late 20s), and she glows with happiness, and just looks great, and beautiful!
She usually visits me to tell me of things that will happen in the future, or gives me advice on things I were pondering about.
I've heard about the religious aspect about this, but even if you're not too religious, it would make sense that once we go back home, we can change our appearance and other things. By just willing it to happen.
I love reading all these stories.
It's nice to see other people experienced similar things with family members who have passed on.
To me it seems like my late family members are watching over me, gently guiding me.
My humble 2 cents.
