How do I explain where my mum is?

My mum passed away when I was 6. My 3 year old is asking me where my mummy is. What do I tell her? I am not religious so don't really want to say that she is in heaven. Any ideas?

I usually pick a star out and tell my kids that's where our loved ones are.

I'm not religious either and this is the easiest way to explain that they are no longer with us everyday. I really only had to do it with my oldest 8 years ago when my grandfather passed away. I chose the brightest star and explained it was Morfar watching us. He has never asked since and we have lost a few other family members since.
