MARK Wahlberg and brother Donnie said goodbye to their late mother Alma on Saturday as they carried her casket during the funeral church service.
The Wahlberg matriarch died on April 18 at 78 years old.
Mark, 49, had been filming his new movie Stu in Los Angeles last week and flew into Massachusetts for the services.
The funeral was held at the Saint Teresa Of Calcutta church in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
He attended with his wife Rhea Durham, who he’s been married to since 2009, while Donnie also had his wife, Jenny McCarthy, there for support.
After the church service for Alma, her family and friends gathered outside as Mark, his brother, and a few other men carried out her casket.
The Ted actor wore navy blue pants, a gray, long-sleeve polo shirt, and a white face mask.
Donnie, 51, attended in a dark suit.
A couple of officers stood on either side of the church’s double doors as the group of men made their way outside.
Alma's cause of death is unknown, but the mother-of-nine had been suffering from declining health and dementia.
Mark shared the sad news of his mom's passing with a photo of her on Instagram last Sunday with the caption: "My angel. Rest in peace."
Donnie shared a heartfelt video of fond memories with Alma, including footage of her rollerblading and being honored in a speech at a black-tie event.
He wrote in the description: "I’m so blessed to have been brought into this world by, raised by, taught by and set on my life’s path by, such an amazing woman.
"My mom Alma’s joy for life, love and people — combined with a pride in her humble beginnings and refusal to forget where she came from — undoubtedly shaped me into the man that I am.
"I’ve often said, if you like anything about me, I got it from Alma. I say that, because it’s true.
"She was, without a doubt, the most loving human being I’ve ever known."
He added:"It’s time to rest peacefully, mom.
"I love you, miss you, thank you and will celebrate you, today and always. Forever — your Baby Donnie."
Alma was often featured on the family's A&E series, Wahlburgers.
She was the mother of nine children – Paul, Arthur, Tracey, Michelle, Jim, Debbie, Robert, Donnie and Mark Wahlberg.
