Family members in a dream can mean many different things. They may simply be themselves and the dream may be dealing with some aspect of your family life or your relationship with these family members. Consider the dynamics and interpersonal relationships within the dream and how they may be different from waking life. There may be an important lesson to learn about yourself and/or your relationship with your family.
Dreaming of a funeral often elicits waking life fear that someone is going to die. This is rarely the case since, like most dreams, funeral dreams are usually metaphorical and may represent something inside or some aspect of Self that has died; or may symbolize some aspect of waking life is coming to end or is being put to rest.
