That day, Carrey posted a tweet showing a silhouette of them together in happier times.

“Love cannot be lost,” the caption read.

Carrey, who made the 5,000-mile journey from Los Angeles to bid farewell to the young make-up artist, helped carry her casket through the streets. He was seen closing his eyes tightly to fight back tears.

A friend was quoted as saying that her “sisters and family seemed very glad to have him there.”

In keeping with Irish tradition, the entire town came out to pay their final respects. They moved slowly through the streets where Cathriona grew up, while children from the local elementary school formed an honor guard alongside the hearse.
