Close to 1,000 people packed into a church in Pierrefonds Saturday for the funeral of a slain teenager.
Darius Brown was killed on Nov. 17 in Cote-St-Luc after being attacked by another 17-year-old boy.
The funeral, which was so full many had to stand, was held at Westview Bible Church on Pierrefonds Blvd.
Several school buses transported mourners to the service, filling the parking lot.
“He was an absolutely lovely young man,” said Jennifer Wooley, the librarian at Lakeside Academy, where Darius went to school. “As a school we’re very much a family, and we’re a family with a broken heart. We’re shattered.”
According to his obituary, the high school student lived in NDG and was an active member at local community centres, namely Westhaven, where both his parents were involved.

Faith Marie Mill, in December 1954. Returning to Canada from Europe in 1954 he served in the Overseas Ferry Unit, flying small single-engined fighters across the Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario. The family will receive visitors on Friday April 6, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m., and from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Munro & Morris Funeral Home, 46 Oak Street, Lancaster (613-347-3629). www.munromorris.comDORAIS, Monique (Dufort) - At the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Alexandria on Monday, March 26, 2018.

Aubrey de Grey thinks the first humans who will live to 1,000 already walk among us. But is postponing death a good thing?
Tech folks are a little antsy about the whole death thing. They're putting money behind DNA 'hacking,' organ printing and tiny robots that might kill what ails you
