Jim Carrey, Cathriona White


Jim Carreyjoined the family and other loved ones of girlfriend Cathriona White as she was laid to rest at a funeral in her hometown in Ireland on Saturday.

The memorial service took place in the Irish village of Cappawhite in County Tipperary. Carrey, 53, and about five other men, dressed in black suits, were seen exiting the Our Lady of Fatima Church and carrying her light wooden coffin as scores of mourners followed them up a street during the procession. The actor was seen breaking down in tears, The Irish Mirror reported. He did not speak but did share a moving photo and message on Twitter after the service.

White was found dead in a home in the Los Angeles area on Sept. 28. She was 30 and is believed to have taken her own life. She and Carrey, who has called her a "truly kind and delicate Irish flower," began dating in 2012 and split after a few months before rekindling their romance in May. He has offered to do anything he can to help her family during this devastating period.

"Cathriona had such an amazing capacity to love and to be loved," The Irish Mirror quoted her sister, Sarah, as saying at the memorial service. "From growing up in Cappawhite, through to moving to Clonmel and finally settling in L.A., love remained a constant in her life from beginning to end."

Her young relative Tadgh White told mourners White was not afraid to chase her big dreams, saying, "She followed them all the way to L.A., and you could not get any bigger than that," the outlet reported.

White was laid to rest next to her father, Pat, who died in 2012 after battling cancer.

"Cathriona was more of a Daddy's girl that anyone else I've ever met and although losing them both in such a short time is unimaginably difficult for us we can take some comfort in the knowledge that Cathriona and Pat are together again," Sarah said, according to The Irish Mirror. "She is at peace."
