If you believe in guardian angels, and angels being dead people, then it might be a dead family who loved you dearly, or it might just be a kind soul who has no family and wanted to help someone out, so they picked you. I personally don't believe in guardian angels, but if you believe you have one then either of those is possible. However, that said, I would like to think that maybe my grandparents have been watching over me, and if so, I hope they're proud of me.
I truly believe there are guardian angels. And YES They can be someone in your family who has passed on! There were plenty of instances where I've gone through rough times and had certain deceased relatives there with me. Not so much being able to see them, (accept for once) but little things that would appear or certain noises or smells out of the blue.... It's amazing!
The Scriptures do not teach that each person on earth has a guardian angel. We pray in confidence that “no matter what it is that we ask according to his will, [God] hears us.” (1 John 5:14) Of course, Jehovah could send an angel to assist us, but help may come in a different manner. Fellow Christians may be motivated to provide help and comfort. God may give us the wisdom and inner strength needed to cope with “a thorn in the flesh” that afflicts us as if we were being slapped by “an angel of Satan.”—2 Cor. 12:7-10; 1 Thess. 5:14.
Angels are beings created by God (Colossians 1:15-17) and are entirely different from humans. They are God's special agents to carry out His plan and to minister to the followers of Christ (Hebrews 1:13-14). There is no indication that angels were formerly humans or anything else-they were created as angels. Read more: http://www.gotquestions.org/become-angels.html#ixzz2MEZaDRuV

In stressful times it’s appealing to believe we have our own guardian angel to protect us. The Bible is a reliable source to find the answer to your question. From Jesus we learn that angels are deeply interested in people. (Luke 15:10) However, the Bible does not speak of designated angels for each servant, or that dead loved ones are watching from the spirit realm. Jesus spoke about the condition of the dead in regard to Lazarus: “Our friend has gone to rest.” His friends thought he meant Lazarus was sleep recovering from illness. But Jesus clarified: “Lazarus has died.” (John 11:11-14) Lazarus was neither in heaven nor being reborn as another human or spirit creature. He was at rest in death, as though in a deep sleep without dreams. Other scriptures also compare death to sleep. (Acts 7:60; 1 Cor. 15:6) But if the dead are “sleep”, when will they wake up? The Bible assures us at Psalm 37:10,11,29 that billions now sleeping will be awakened back to Earth to live forever. This is different than what some have learned, but it is worth your consideration! We all await seeing dead loved ones again under much better circumstances in a perfect world! (Revelation 21:3,4)
Angels In Allegiance To The Most High God Are Ministering Spirits Sent To Help Those Who Are To Believe / Receive Jesus Christ of Nazareth; and Ultimately Receive Life Eternal. ------------------------------- Scripture Quote ------------------------------- What are the angels, then? They are spirits who serve God and are sent by him to help those who are to receive salvation. (Hebrews 1:14 GNT)
