Whoopi Goldberg opens up about her pain after mother`s death

London: Whoopi Goldberg has opened up about her pain following her mother`s death in August (10).

Emma Johnson suffered a stroke and passed away on 29 August (10), leaving Goldberg shattered.

And the Ghost star admits she``s still coming to terms with her mum`s death and is concentrating on work to cope with the tragedy.

"I`m still in the processing phase. It`s really hard to believe that she`s gone. I used to talk to her every day. I``m still in the habit of talking to her, you know, but I just wish she were here with me. Every day she`d say, ``I`m proud of you``, and I would respond, ``I`m proud of you.`` I was very lucky to have her as a mother," the Daily Star quoted Goldberg as telling People.com.

"I know she had a great life, so I can`t be too sad. She had a great time of it. But of course I`m sad because I really miss her.

"I``ve been keeping really busy. Of course, there`s `The View`. I did two movies... and I have a book coming out next week... It``s good to have things to do, to be working. Working makes me happy," she added.
