The photographs show the two sisters looking happy and at ease with life at Lisa White's wedding on August 8th last year, one of the last times they were together.

Lisa is now finalising plans to repatriate her sibling's body from LA to their native Ireland for burial after she died by suspected suicide last week.

Lisa and her stepmother, Bríd, travelled to the US last week to bring Cathriona home to Cappawhite, South Tipperary, for her funeral.

Cathriona's former boyfriend Jim Carrey, who starred in several Hollywood movies, including 'Dumb and Dumber' and 'The Grinch', is expected to attend Ms White's funeral.

Details of the funeral have yet to be made public. However, Cathriona's grandfather's undertakers firm, White's Funeral Directors in Doon, Co Limerick, are expected to be involved.

She will be buried alongside her father, Pat, who died in 2012 after battling cancer for more than 20 years.

Cathriona (30) was found dead in her home in LA next to a bottle of pills. A cause of death has yet to be disclosed, however it's believed she died of a drugs overdose.

Friends and family members have paid online tributes to the former make-up artist and actress whose death came as a major shock to her loved ones. Underneath the stunning photograph of Lisa and Cathriona, posted on Lisa's Facebook page, Aine Heffernan wrote: "Lisa my heart goes out to you at this very sad time thinking of you & your family what a beautiful picture xx".

Josie Quinlan Harding posted: "So sorry to you Lisa and all the family it is heart breaking for ye."
