LOS ANGELES — L'Wren Scott was mourned on Tuesday by family, friends and her longtime companion, Mick Jagger, at a small, private funeral in Los Angeles.

A representative for the Rolling Stones frontman said the service was held at Hollywood Forever Funeral Home in Los Angeles. It included blessings and prayers led by the Rev. Ed Bacon of the All Saints Church in Pasadena, and words of tribute from Jagger, Scott's brother Randy Bambrough, and others.

Poems were read by Jagger's daughter, Karis, as well as the actress Ellen Barkin, a good friend of Scott's. Jagger's daughter Jade and his grandchildren, Mazie and Zak, read psalms. Bambrough's daughter, Hannah, read a Shakespearean sonnet.

"Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" was sung by Bernard Fowler, with Dave Stewart on guitar.

Scott, both a designer and a longtime stylist, committed suicide on March 17 in New York.
