Friends and family crowded the sanctuary of Davidson United Methodist Church Wednesday afternoon at the funeral service for 16-year-old Hough High School student Maurice Van Hecke, who died Friday. At the conclusion of the ceremony mourners crowded into the courtyard and released orange balloons — his favorite color — in his memory.
