0007628: Dwarves can achieve dreams after they die
I got a married dwarf couple in the first migrant wave. The husband died, and later the wife had his baby. Afterward, the husband's thoughts menu showed that he had achieved his dream of starting a family. Prior to the baby (and while he was dead), he hadn't achieved the dream yet. He never became a ghost and was put in a coffin shortly after he died. Pictures of the thoughts screen before and after the baby in this topic:

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not but I figured it wouldn't hurt to report it.
Find a married dwarf couple where the husband dreams of a family. Wait a few months and kill the male. Wait for baby. Check husband's thoughts.

Yeah, I think there will be technical problems if we allow the dead to experience circumstances in the same way as the living, even after they return. It'll be easy to diversify it when we understand undeath better.
