Relatives of 18-year-old Michael Brown have called on those attending his funeral to push for change and help end "the senseless killings."
 
Thousands of people turned out Monday to honor Brown, who was fatally shot on Aug. 9 by a police officer in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb.
 
The funeral at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis began with upbeat music punctuated by clapping and even some dancing. Relatives recalled Brown as a gentle soul with a deep and growing faith in Christianity.
 
His cousin, Eric Davis, urged those in attendance to go to the polls and push for change. He told the crowd: "We have had enough of the senseless killings."
 
Brown's uncle, Bernard Ewing, recalled Brown as a "big guy, but a kind, gentle soul."
