Goldberg's mother, Emma Johnson, passed away from complications following a stroke on Aug. 28. The loss is difficult to get used to.
"I used to talk to her every day," says The View co-host. "I'm still in the habit of talking to her, you know, but I just wish she were here with me." <!-- jump -->
What types of things did Goldberg and her mother talk about? "Every day she'd say, 'I'm proud of you,' " recalls Goldberg. "And I would respond, 'I'm proud of you.' I was very lucky to have her as a mother."
"I know she had a great life," continues Goldberg, "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."
Despite her mourning, Goldberg has found a silver lining. "We didn't leave anything unsaid," she explains.
