POWDER SPRINGS, Georgia (WTLV) -- Hundreds attended 17-year-old Jordan Davis' funeral service that was held at Trinity Chapel in Powder Springs, Georgia.

Davis, a student at Wolfson High School, was killed in Jacksonville on November 23 after what police say was an argument started over loud music.

Lucia McBath, his mother, leaned on those around her as she said goodbye to her 17-year-old son.

Among the hundreds of supporters at Trinity Chapel were two of Davis' classmates, Bre Anderson and Samantha Williams, from Wolfson High School in Jacksonville.

"Last time I spoke to him was Thursday night on Thanksgiving and it's just so hard because I miss him so much," said Williams.

The family's attorney, John Phillips said Saturday was extraordinarily difficult and those close to Davis are still trying to come to terms with his death.

Phillips and Davis' family hope his death will have a butterfly effect on the community making people kinder and gentler to those around them.
