“I’m not sad, because she had a great time,” Whoopi said on The View of her mother’s life.

“My mother was a great adventure person, so she loved to go on adventures and my brother and I made sure that her life was full and rich,” she added.

“I think I’m just sad sometimes that I think, ‘Who will love me the way that she did?'” she explained. “But I realize that my brother and I have each other and so we’re OK.”
