A cache of bones churned up while digging a canal. Every town has its ghost stories: stories of restless souls, children who died tragically, people murdered by the hand of a loved one. Their spirits must be searching for something, some say. They cannot rest in peace until they settle some score.

Amber Bryant was unique. She liked her high heels, going on Jeep rides with her dad and dogs she’s had throughout her life — Rosie, Jackson, Roxie, Choco and Brody. Her first word was “meow,” and the love of her life was her son, Preston. “She loved life and she loved people. She loved her family and she loved her students, parents and many friends she had,” said the Rev. Walter Colace during his eulogy for Bryant on Wednesday morning. About 800 people came out to celebrate the life and mourn the passing of Bryant, who was shot to death Oct. 4. It was one of the hardest ceremonies Colace has had to officiate, and he’s sure it was hard for those who attended, he said.
