The service is scheduled to start at 11 am.\n\nThe 52 year-old entertainer died on June 11 2005, and is the second member of the Studio One family to have died in just over a year. Her death comes close on the heels of the passing of Clement \"Sir Coxsone\" Dodd, the founder and patriarch of the legendary studio. Dodd passed away last year May.\n\nLara joined the Studio One family in 1969, and soon afterwards released Studio One Presents Jennifer Lara, which would be her sole album on that label. Over the decades that followed, the entertainer continued to sing professionally, releasing several singles through Studio One, and singing backup vocals for a number of artistes on the label.\n\nHer best-known single was an original titled Consider Me, and her last song, a duet with guitarist Dalton Browne called Ordinary People, was recorded only weeks ago at Studio One.\n\nToday\'s service will bring the curtain down onthe farewell celebrations that started on Thursday, which was named \"Jennifer Lara Day\" by the Studio One family. On Thursday, relatives, friends and members of the music fraternity spent the day on the grounds of Studio One in Kingston, paying homage to the singer, whose music career spanned over36 years.\n\nThere, the tributes flowed, and Lara was honoured in music and words by her community and contemporaries. Veteran radio disc jockey Winston Williams remembered Jennifer Lara (the sister of Derrick Lara who sings with the Tamlins), as one who lived her life as an ordinary person, befittingthe title of her last recording, Ordinary People.\"That (her humility and simplicity) will be her legacy,\" Williams noted.\n\nSaxophonist Kevin Bonfield, before his touching rendition of Everything I Own, said that although his acquaintance with her was brief, his memories of her will last a lifetime.Lara\'s stepson Tamar was overcome with grief, but nevertheless publicly declared his love and gratitude to the woman he regarded as his mother.\n\n\"Jennifer Lara is not only a mother, she is a grandmother, a friend to the youth and all people in the community. Jennifer is a nice lady, and from she died I don\'t eat... a keep myself on fasting. I\'m going to miss her a lot. Jennifer, you gone too soon. This is Tamar your son, I\'m not your stepson, I\'m your son because you grow mi,\" said Tamar in an emotion-riddled speech.\n\nTributes were also given by a number of people who knew Lara, not as a singer, but as an ordinary citizen.\n\n\"On behalf of South St Andrew and Torrington Park, the young and the old, senior citizens, we regret the passing of Miss Jennifer Lara. She was a lady of principle and dignity, caring and loving,\" said a woman who gave her name as Tiney, a resident of Torrington Parkwhere Jennifer Lara resided for several years.\n\nMusical tributes also came from Bunny Robinson of Bunny and Skully fame. Bunny sang the Alton Ellis classic, Muriel, substituting the name in the title with Jennifer.Spotted among the gathering were old school acts such as vocalist Errol Dunkley, deejays Lone Ranger, Ranking Trevor, female singer Maureen Weber, members of the Silvertones group, former Skatalites\' ace guitarist, Jerome \"Jah Jerry\" Hinds, and vintage selector/broadcaster Bunny Goodison, among others.\n\nPioneer deejay Winston \"King Stitt\" Sparks, kept the gathering entertained with some vintage Studio One selections, inclusive of those recorded by Jennifer Lara.
