In the week following Jim Carrey‘s on-off girlfriend Cathriona White’s apparent suicide on Sept. 28, some of her closet friends gathered to honor their “sweet Cathriona” with a private memorial service.

A friend of White’s, Joshua Shultz, posted a photo from the memorial service on Instagram, writing, “Goodby Cat. I love you.”

“In Loving Memory of our sweet Cathriona White,” read the memorial program for the service, which also featured a black-and-white photo of White, pink flowers and a quote.

The wake was held at Zorthian Ranch in Altadena, California, according to Tony Ortega, a journalist who has covered Scientology for years.

Another friend, Jenny Burpee, also shared a photo of the sun setting over the ranch on the night of memorial.

“This sunset was for you dearest Cat,” she captioned the scenic photo.

Shultz also shared a touching tribute to White in the days following her death.

“Dear Cat, my dear friend. I am going to miss you. I remember the first time we hung out and we cried laughing watching Zoolander, ” he captioned a photo of the two.

He continued: “Or when you dropped everything to help me plan and throw my first art show. Or the last time I saw you. You dropped everything to come take care of me because I was sick. You brought me tea and vitamins. You are the sweetest kindest person I ever had the honor of calling my friend. I love you and I miss you. RIP. you are truly loved”

White’s funeral has been scheduled for this weekend in Cappawhite, a village in her hometown of Tipperary, Ireland.

According to note posted by White’s uncle outside his undertaking business, the funeral will take place on Saturday. Before the service, friends and family can pay their respects at a wake on Friday night.

It is still unclear if Carrey will fly to Ireland to attend the funeral.

A source close to the family told PEOPLE White will “be buried with her beloved dad, Pat, in the local cemetery.”
