Mourners have gathered to pay their respects to Jim Carrey‘s late girlfriend Cathriona White at her hometown in Ireland.

Crowds were seen outside White Funeral Home in Cappawhite, Tipperary on Friday.

A source has confirmed to PEOPLE that Carrey arrived in Dublin early Friday morning for the funeral, which will take place on Saturday at her hometown parish church.

On his decision to attend the funeral the source explains: “He really wants to pay his respects and loves her.”

According to the Irish Independent White’s family have requested flowers only for the service and if donations are desired, then to send them to the Simon Community and Circle of Friends Tipperary.

A memorial was held for White earlier this week at a ranch in California, which was organized by some of her closest friends.

White, 30, was found dead of an apparent suicide at L.A. residence on Sept. 28, just two days after the third anniversary of her father’s death. Pills and multiple suicide notes were found near her body. One not was addressed to Carrey, 53.

Carrey has been doing “everything he can to help” White’s family, a source told PEOPLE last week. “He is devastated, but can’t imagine how her family must feel.”
