What can I do to make deceased happy with me again

Q:

Asalamu alaikum, I have a loved one who passed away a year ago, they had never come in my dreams throughout this year but last night unexpectedly they came in my dreams for the first time and they seemed very unhappy with me, the reason they gave for being unhappy with me was true, what can I do to change this and make them happy with me, Obviously I cannot change the past and I have to accept and repent for the sin that I committed, but what can I do to make that person happy with me again. Would mean alot if you could help me. Jazak’Allah khair.

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your Question.
 
So the best thing a person can do for the deceased is to give charity. There is nothing like charity for the ones who have preceded us to the next world. 
In your case, sincere repentance and also , if you’re able to, to reverse the sin you committed or somehow compensate it should help you and them too. 
 
Reciting Quran for them and making speacil dua for them should give tranquility to you and them InshaAllah. 
 
Hope it all goes well for you 
Kind regards,
