Jim Carrey had an important role at his girlfriend Cathriona White’s funeral.
According to The Irish Mirror, Carrey and five other men were seen carrying White’s coffin out of Our Lady of Fatima Church in Cappawhite, Ireland on Saturday, Oct. 10.
The actor was also seen comforting White’s family and later on breaking down in tears. White, 28, was found dead of a possible overdose in her apartment on Monday, Oct 5. Her stepsister, Sarah, gave the eulogy at the funeral.
“When I started writing this I didn’t know where to begin. How do you summarize such an amazing life in just a few words?” she said. “But the more I thought about it the more I came to realize that I just needed one word—love."
White was buried next to her father, Pat, and according to Sarah’s eulogy, that was the right place.
“Cathriona was more of a Daddy’s girl than anyone else I’ve ever met," she said, also talking about how "unimaginably difficult" it was for the family to lose both of them in such a short amount of time, but they could find comfort in knowing they were "together again."
She added that her sister was now "at peace" and how everyone needed to comfort one another. "There is no easy fix for grief. Particularly when we have lost somebody so young with so much left to give," she said.
