After hundreds gathered at Cathriona White’s hometown in Ireland over the weekend to pay their last respects to Jim Carrey‘s late girlfriend, on Monday White’s biological mother visited the graveyard where her daughter was laid to rest.

Walking with the aide of two crutches and supported by her second husband Brian, Brigid Sweetman cried as she stood at her daughter’s grave, in the town of Cappawhite in Tipperary.

Sweetman left a large bouquet of sunflowers, along with a handwritten note, at the foot of the grave before leaving.

According to local sources, Sweetman was visiting the grave before returning to her home in England.

White was interred in the local cemetery next to her beloved father, Pat. She died of an apparent suicide two days after the third anniversary of her father’s death.

Carrey, 53, was present for White’s funeral Mass and burial on Saturday, and was seen carrying her casket from the church.

A close family friend who attended the funeral told PEOPLE that Carrey “seemed terribly upset” during the service.

“It was nice that he carried her coffin,” the source added. “Cathriona’s sisters and family seemed very glad to have him there.”

The actor did not attend the post-burial function at the local community center, but instead went to the house of White’s sister, Lisa, for a private meeting.

Carrey shared a final tribute to his “delicate Irish flower,” on Saturday.

“Love cannot be lost,” the actor tweeted, along with a flower emoji and an image of him with White, their bodies silhouetted by the sky.

White was found dead in her Los Angeles home on Sept. 28. Prescription medication and multiple suicide notes – including one addressed to Carrey – were discovered near her body, according to the coroner’s report.

“She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled,” Carrey said in a statement following her death. “My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her.”
