Emptiness is only an illusion and delusion of our own mind. When we detached ourselves slowly into the reality of life and death, we will understand that there is no clinging to the impossible.
It is only a human emotional inclination. The degree of sadness all depends on one's disposition of thought. Life is death , Death is life.
In fact , at a right old age of 95 with no major sickness ..it is a bliss to be in the kingdom of heaven..dancing with the angels..We are all blessed to send our mother on her eternal journey with no suffering and pain..Hence we do not cling on to life impermanence !
