Dr. Dre buried his son, Andre Young Jr., in Los Angeles this weekend. The funeral, held a week after the 20-year-old boy's death, took place at the Church of the Recessional in Glendale, California on Friday, August 29.

More than 200 mourners were seen attending the funeral to pay their last respects, reports TMZ. Andre's high school classmate at Stoneridge Preparatory in Simi Valley, Calif. and Dre's fellow music star, Xzibit, remembered him as a good young boy. The rap star told People that he's giving Dre space to cope with the loss and he will then "step in and do whatever he asks."

Andre's former classmate, Sarah Steinhorn, elsewhere, has told People, "He always had a smile on his face. Even when something bad would happen, like if he didn't pass a test or didn't do as well as he wanted to. He always looked at the positive side." Sarah continued saying, "I remember him liking to go to parties in high school but not for the reasons that people think. It was never about drugs or alcohol with him. He just really enjoyed being around people, talking and interacting and meeting new people."

Andre was found dead at Dre's home in Woodland Hills, California at about 10:30 A.M. on August 23 by his mother who tried to wake him up. He was found unresponsive following an outing with his friends the day prior. An autopsy has been done last week and toxicology tests are done already, but it will take eight weeks for authorities before they could finally confirm the cause of his death. The Los Angeles coroner's office, in the meantime, has confirmed that there were "no signs of trauma or foul play."

First and foremost. Much love and respect 2 you and your family. I give u my blessings. I'd also like 2 enlighten u with a few words 4 thought.I'ts never easy when someone passes life.We really don't know how strong the word "family" is until times like this,atleast I didn't.I've lost 4 lives in my Family,that were my blood. My two brothers,and my only two children.1 girl,1 boy. The differance between the four is two are dead, two are still alive. I was so hurt and angry, For my brothers, I didn't care 4 my own life. But my kids did. And at that time I wasn't there for them. For two years I was lost. So bad I lost them by not being around or being there for them. I didn't realize how much they hurt for not having a daddy! Their mother moved to another town and the kids went with her. For years we were distant.I didn't see or talk to either one. I had lost my family,my kids,my life. If it wasn't 4 my little brother and sisters " Margaret and Monica", I would have no family.It took a while to see my kids,but thier here in my life and I'm in thier life. My Family means the most 2 me,"ALL" my family. Lose'n my brothers was hard,but lose'n my family was harder. FAMILY is a big thing and means very much and u got it all around u. DONT LOSE IT,LOVE IT.
