Sir Mick Jagger - Sir Mick Jagger pays tribute to L'Wren Scott
Sir Mick Jagger paid tribute to his long-term partner L'Wren Scott, who committed suicide last week, at her funeral on Tuesday (25.03.14).
The Rolling Stones frontman, 70, was supported by his children, Karis, 43, Jade, 42, Elizabeth, 30, Georgia May, 22, James, 28, and Gabriel, 16, at the private service at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for the late fashion designer.
Sir Mick spoke about his love for his girlfriend of 13 years and shared memories of their time together at the ''intimate'' and sombre service, which was led by Revered Ed Bacon from the All Saints Church in Pasadena, California, according to PEOPLE.com.
Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart later accompanied Bernard Fowler, a backup singer that has appeared on more than 30 albums with The Rolling Stones, as he performed the song 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken,' while Karis read a poem and Jade read Psalm 139.
L'Wren's brother Randall Bambrough and her close friends also gave speeches during the heartbreaking ceremony.
Mick's grandchildren Mazie and Zak also read Psalms, and L'Wren's niece Hannah Bambrough read Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, 'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?' during the service.
The rocker, who was on tour in Australia when L'Wren committed suicide in her apartment in New York City on March 17, released the following statement last week: ''I'm still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. I will never forget her.''
