    Hundreds of mourners have come out to remember the Massachusetts teen killed in last week's natural gas explosions north of Boston.

    The Eagle-Tribune reports some 300 people attended Wednesday's funeral for 18-year-old Leonel Rondon at St. Mary the Assumption Church in Lawrence.

    Rev. John Dello Russo remembered Rondon as a teen with a bright future. Rondon's cousin Leomary Colon said he'd once told her to "live it until it's gone.''

    The high school junior died September 13 after the chimney of an exploding house crashed into his car and crushed him. Rondon had just received his driver's license hours earlier.
