Diem Brown was laid to rest in New York on Tuesday, but not before her loved ones said goodbye to the MTV reality star.

The 32-year-old, who passed away after a long battle with cancer, was given a beautiful ceremony at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in downtown Manhattan.

The service started with the song On Eagles' Wings as Diem's family followed her casket to the front of the church.

Many of her family members and close friends paid tribute to the fallen star.

Her sister, Megan, delivered a heartbreaking eulogy that basically summed up who Diem was as a person.

She tearfully said:

"Diem loved hard, lived hard and danced hard. My mom always said that Diem came out fighting since day one."

Megan went on to share a lighthearted story of the time the two girls were kids and selling Girl Scout cookies to random names in the phonebook.

Close friends also took part in the ceremony — some shared poems, while others read Bible passages.

Alicia Quarles, a close friend of Diem's, emotionally recounted her pal's will to live:

"Diem was the happiest person I know. Till her last breath, she never gave up. I can't even explain to you her divinity."

In between her readings, Alicia had a little flub and started reading too soon, causing the guests at the service to laugh.

She acknowledged her mistake and said:

"Diem is laughing at me right now. We all know Diem forgives everyone, so she forgives me for that!"

While it was a super sad ceremony, those who were in attendance were able to share some laughter and great memories of the reality star.

We have a feeling that's something Diem would've wanted. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends.
