The Serbia & Montenegro striker returned home to attend the funeral, but was back in time to play in Real Sociedad's 2-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna at the Anoeta for which the club held a minute's silence.
"It was a very special day," he explained.
"I will never forget what has happened to me because it was very emotional to be able to dedicate the goal to my mother.
"I am sure that she would be very happy."
Sociedad have made a solid start to the season and are currently just four points behind leaders Getafe who they face on Thursday in La Liga.
"We all wanted to start the season well and that has happened," the former Sheffield Wednesday man said.
"We have our feet on the ground though and will stay calm about things."
Turkish international striker Nihat Kahveci is a doubt for the trip to Getafe after picking up an injury against Deportivo.
"He has taken a direct blow to the underside of his foot and there is now a large bruise," a club medic explained.
"It should be only a few days' recovery though."
