We are told (34:5) that Moshe had a particularly easy and painless death. Rav Dessler used to bring out of two gemarras that the easiness of death depends on how one has lived their life. If one has lived a spiritually bereft, materialistic life, then one has pulled their spiritual neshama to attach itself to the physical body, and thus it becomes painful to separate the body and soul upon death. If, however, one has lived a spiritual life and defined themselves by the spiritual laws then the neshama has remained separate to, and has not been polluted by the body - and as such it is easy and painless to separate the two upon death.
