I think I have a plausible explanation:
Maybe you have been dealing with a lot of stress/anxiety in the waking state. Possibly fear of death or the law (the pig) is after you. Not sure but while in your sleeping state your subconscious was playing out your fears and it was causing panic in you, activating all the stress you have built up over all the years.
So when your family members, that you loved but are now gone, appeared, the sight of them calmed you down. It brought you out of the nightmare and brought you a happier moment. When you woke up, the disturbing images stuck with you along with the sadness of having to leave your missed loved ones.
I have dreams often of my Uncle and Grandfather visiting me and dreams and in my dream I know that they are dead and I will ask them, "You are dead, how are you here?" And every time, both respond with, "I am visiting you in your dreams." So now when I see them in there, I don't waste anytime with that question and just spend time with them. I try to ask them about the "other side."
But every time they visit, it is usually a time when I am stressed out with life or just missing them.
I hope that helps

I guess if you think thats unworthy of research or work.. and wish to avoid it.. to each his or her own.
I think the thing with grandma was just her and the way my brain recalls her interacting with me. I was a rowdy kid and she made me do busy work.
