What’s the meaning of the dream that the deceased person is crying? Sometimes, the living person has nostalgia and misses the deceased. They cried and consequently in the dream, they see the deceased as being sad for them and crying. When the mental state of the living person is stressed and upset, the person will dream of metaphors/ symbols that speak of sadness.
In some cultures, the mourning relatives and friends are required to display calmness and respectful joy during the periods of the funeral and bereavement. They are required to carry on their lives in relative normalcy, to avoid making the dead person sad.
