I'm very sorry for the loss of your parents. I'm an adult orphan as well, having lost both parents by the age of 41, and an only child of older
parents so all of my grandparents and aunts and uncles are gone as well. It's very lonely when I stop and think about it.
I frequently (at least 3 times a week) have a dream where one or both of my parents are still alive, sometimes younger and we're at the house I grew
up in but it's sometimes different and there are more houses built around it. And we're just going about the day, but not as extensively as your
dream, and then at some point I realize that in reality they are gone, and I just can't process how they can be and yet not be. I'll go around the
house tapping on objects to see if they sound the same as when I was there and they do. And then I realize the house has been sold to someone else and
I panic, thinking I can't be living here. If they show up, I'll be in trouble. Once the realization that my mom was gone came to me in a dream where I
was sitting in the living room talking to her and I said "You're not really here." To which she replied "Neither are you."
I also have constant dreams about places that are very different, yet I could tell you how they parallel real life ones.
I really do believe there's something to dreams because I've had visitations from people who died but I hadn't known they had passed yet. Out of the
blue I dreamed about a neighbor I hadn't had contact with in about five years. I only heard her voice but it was definitely Jenny and she said mater
of factly "Well, I'm not here anymore." and some other chit chat but sure enough about four weeks later my friend spots her obituary in the paper. She
had passed around that time of the dream. Proof enough to me that there's something more to dreams.
