Brief Character History

Ambrosia Moore, "Amber" for short, was an aspiring artist living in Furnace Creek, California. The teen had a boyfriend named Eb and a waitressing job at a local diner when her life was turned upside down by the arrival of a new waitress, Sheila Carter. Amber took Sheila in after Sheila poured her heart out about being forced to leave her daughter behind in Los Angeles. Amber worried when she found that Sheila had built a shrine to baby Mary in her closet. But Amber was intrigued when Sheila said Amber could make more money babysitting for Mary, so Amber high-tailed it to L.A. to approach Mary's father, James Warwick, for the job.

Amber had no idea how to care for a child, but she faked her way into the position as Mary's babysitter. Amber let Sheila sneak in to see Mary, but Sheila quickly took advantage, even breastfeeding the baby. When James discovered that Amber had been sent by Sheila, who had a criminal and mentally unbalanced past, James promised Amber a convertible if she would spy on Sheila. James played on Sheila's residual feelings for him while Amber worked with James' wife, Maggie Forrester Warwick, to prove that Sheila, who had taken Mary back, was an unfit mother. The ruse ended when Sheila attempted suicide by jumping off a building.

Amber also had singing ambitions and began hanging out at the Insomnia coffee house, where she met underaged Rick Forrester. Rick developed a crush on Amber and convinced his mother, Brooke Logan, to hire Amber as a babysitter for him and his younger sister, Bridget Forrester. Amber stole Brooke's expensive diamond tennis bracelet and hocked it, but Rick bought it back before Brooke could discover it was missing. Rick formed a band with his friend, C.J. Garrison, so Amber could sing in front of record producer John Quincy. When John liked Amber's voice, there was a celebration in which Amber dared Rick and C.J. to a drag race. Rick wrecked his car and needed a kidney transplant, so Amber, who up until then hadn't taken Rick seriously, donated her kidney to Rick to make up for causing the crash.

Rick lost his virginity to Amber, but Amber also had a one-night stand with Raymond Usher, a friend from high school. When Amber turned up pregnant, Rick's family was horrified, but so was Amber, because she didn't know if the father was Rick or Raymond, who was African-American. Later, Sheila, who had married James and become unhinged over James' friendship with her old nemesis, Stephanie Forrester, barged into Stephanie's house demanding Mary, whom Stephanie was babysitting. Sheila shot Stephanie and was about to finish her off when Amber rushed in and ambushed Sheila. Sheila got the upper hand during their fight, slamming Amber's head into the mantelpiece before taking Mary and escaping. Amber worried that the altercation would cause her to miscarry, but the doctors ultimately gave her a clean bill of health.

Rick felt he was too young to have a baby and became interested in Kimberly Fairchild. But, before long, Rick married Amber to give their child a name. Terrified her baby might be black, Amber went home to Furnace Creek for help from her mother, Tawny Moore. Amber gave birth to a white child, but it was stillborn, forcing Amber to bury it in the desert. When Amber cried that Rick and the Forresters would abandon her without Rick's baby, Tawny hatched a plan to replace Amber's baby with that of Amber's cousin, Becky Moore, who had just given birth to a baby she didn't want. Amber reluctantly "adopted" the boy and introduced him to the Forresters as Eric Forrester III.

Amber was happy raising "Little Eric," but Rick still had feelings for Kimberly. Eventually, Becky returned and wanted her baby back. Amber had Little Eric's birthmark removed to prove he wasn't Becky's, and Becky caught on. However, Becky saw how much Amber had come to love Little Eric and agreed to take the job Amber had arranged for her at Forrester International. Meanwhile, Kimberly smelled a rat and accused Amber of hiding something; the confrontation resulted in a catfight in which Kimberly subdued Amber with martial arts.

Cornered by Kimberly's interference and Becky's gentle coaxing to do the right thing, Amber took Rick aside during a trip to Italy and confessed she had passed off Becky's baby as his. Rick annulled their marriage and dated Kimberly, while Amber found an unexpected friend in Becky. After C.J. and Becky fell in love and planned to marry, Amber picked up a phone call meant for Becky and found out Becky was dying of cancer. Amber and C.J. kept the truth from the happy Becky, who died on her wedding day.

C.J. got temporary custody of Little Eric and moved in with Amber, who invited a band to play at their apartment. But the lead singer's girlfriend was jealous of Amber and planted drugs in Amber's couch. Amber and C.J. were arrested, while Child Protective Services placed Little Eric with Rick. C.J. fell in love with Amber and wanted to make a home with her and Little Eric. Rick, who wanted Amber back, located Little Eric's father, Deacon Sharpe, and recruited him to stop C.J. and Amber's wedding. It worked; Rick got Amber to admit that she still loved him, and Amber left a heartbroken C.J. at the altar.

The sleazy Deacon used his parental rights to reclaim Little Eric and spark a bidding war between the Forresters and C.J.'s family, the Spectras. Deacon fell for Amber, enraging his girlfriend, Carmen Arena. Jealous of Amber's visits to Little Eric, Carmen took the boy to the roof of Deacon's building to dispose of him. Amber arrived in time to stop her, but Carmen attacked Amber and tried to throw her off the high rise. Choked by Carmen, Amber frantically pushed her away, causing Carmen to fall from the rooftop herself.

Deacon returned Little Eric to Amber, though when she remarried Rick, Deacon wooed innocent Bridget, promising to stop only if Amber came away with him. Amber refused, so Deacon married Bridget and forced the Forresters to listen to him take Bridget's virginity over the phone. Amber, moved by Deacon's professions of love, found herself having fantasies about him. But, despite the temptation, Amber stayed true to Rick, and the newlyweds decided to try for another baby.

Amber's remaining kidney became inflamed during a visit to her baby's grave in Furnace Creek, but she quickly recovered. Rick's disapproving father, Eric Forrester, gave Amber a shot at designing her own fashion line at Forrester Creations, sure it would fail. But the "Ambrosia" line was featured on The Price Is Right, and its showing was a huge success. Amber collapsed afterwards and miscarried a second time.

Inconsolable, Amber began relying on painkillers as she struck up a friendship with Erica Lovejoy, a fan of Amber and the Forresters. When Amber couldn't obtain any more pills from her doctor, she bought some on the street. Amber withdrew into herself and hired Erica to be Little Eric's nanny. What Amber and Erica didn't know was that Erica was actually Mary Warwick, the daughter of Sheila Carter.

Realizing the depth of her addiction, Amber turned to psychiatrist Taylor Hayes Forrester for help and decided to enter rehab. Sheila, whose plan was to give Erica the life she once enjoyed as a Forrester, saw Amber's absence as an opportunity for Erica to make a move on her crush, Rick. Amber came home and was delighted when her Ambrosia designs sold out on the shopping network Telesave. But then Sheila paid the unemployed Lance to drug Amber's drink and make it appear Amber was using again. Rick grew closer to Erica when it seemed that Amber had slept with Lance. Sheila, who was coaching Erica, killed Lance before Amber could get him to set things straight with Rick.

Amber went to Erica's apartment building for clues, but Sheila broke a window as Amber stood there. When the police arrived, Amber accidentally hit one of the officers, which got her arrested for assault. Taylor was the only one who believed Amber's claims of innocence and told the court she would be responsible for Amber, who clashed with Taylor's husband, Ridge Forrester. As Erica almost seduced Rick, Ridge found out she was really Mary and blew her cover, prompting a gun-toting Sheila to kidnap Amber to make her take a fatal overdose of drugs. Amber was rescued by Stephanie and Massimo Marone, and Sheila again left town, leaving Taylor and Brooke shot in her wake.

Rick and Amber's marriage survived Sheila, and even the arrival of Amber's twin sister April Knight, who took responsibility for a private sex video of Amber's that an old boyfriend had made public. Amber enjoyed a brief reunion with her twin and even covered a concert date for April when she got sick. But Amber and Rick's marriage didn't survive Deacon, who had cleaned up his act and discovered that only he had a legal claim on Little Eric, since Rick and Amber hadn't adopted him. With the help of Macy Alexander, Deacon filed for sole custody of the boy, prompting Amber to attack Macy at Deacon and Macy's wedding. Desperate, Amber took off with Little Eric, but Deacon tracked them to Furnace Creek. Chased to the edge of a cliff, Amber handed Little Eric back to Deacon, then slipped and fell. When Amber's actions caused a judge to revoke Rick and Amber's visitation rights, Rick filed for divorce.

A newly single Amber wangled her way into a job at Ozzz, a new club run by Oscar Marone. Amber flirted with Oscar and kissed him, but Oscar was forced to close Ozzz when thugs rigged a chandelier to kill Macy. Later, Deacon started his own fashion house and hired Amber as a designer. Soon, Sharpe Designs became a subsidiary of Forrester and had no chance to succeed. A despondent Amber fell asleep and knocked over a candle, setting her apartment on fire. She collapsed from the smoke trying to save her wedding album; fireman Hector Ramirez saved Amber and gave her a place to stay.

Amber moved into Taylor's old beach house, but quickly ran afoul of Ridge when she started a relationship with Ridge's barely legal son, Thomas Forrester. Ridge and Rick led the Forresters in trying to keep Thomas and Amber apart, even filing a restraining order against Amber and trying to force her out of town. Later, Ridge's brother, Thorne Forrester, who had defected to rival fashion house Spectra Fashions, hired Amber to design alongside his sister, Felicia Forrester, and infamous fashion maven Sally Spectra.

Amber tried to make peace with Ridge regarding Thomas, but when Ridge scoffed, Amber vowed revenge. She found out that Ridge once had quasi-incestuous feelings for Bridget, whom Ridge originally thought was his daughter. Amber snapped a misleading photo of Ridge and Bridget in attempt to break up Ridge and Brooke, who slapped Amber in response. Amber then schemed with co-worker Clarke Garrison and arranged for Ridge and Bridget to be trapped together in a mineshaft that was rigged with cameras to capture any inappropriate moments between them. But when Ridge and Bridget almost froze to death, Amber saved them, though Thomas refused to have anything to do with Amber afterwards.

Amber moved to Venice, Italy, where she had honeymooned with Rick. But Amber was stunned to find Ridge in the company of a woman that wasn't Brooke. Amber thought she finally had something on Ridge, but she discovered that Ridge was suffering from amnesia and that the woman was Morgan DeWitt, Ridge's old girlfriend who had once turned psychotic and tried to kill Taylor. Though Brooke accused Amber of kidnapping Ridge when Brooke reported seeing him, Amber helped Ridge regain his memory and brought him home to Los Angeles. The Forresters were grateful but still couldn't forgive Amber's misdeeds, so Amber distanced herself from her former in-laws.

Via the brief CBS web series "L.A. Diaries," it was revealed that Amber had befriended Alison Stewart (from As The World Turns). Alison had left Oakdale and become roommates with Amber. Even though they both had jobs as waitresses in a seedy bar, Amber did a lot of shoplifting to get by. To make extra money, Amber and Alison started a porn site where Amber would show off her body -- though not her face -- via webcam. After a stalker targeted Alison from her own work on the site, Amber and Alison decided to leave Los Angeles and go their separate ways.

Amber turned up in Genoa City, Wisconsin, where she sang occasionally at Indigo, a jazz club owned by Neil Winters. After running into Lauren Fenmore, who she'd known in Los Angeles, Amber scored a job selling clothes at a Jabot boutique. Amber also spent a lot of time at Crimson Lights, a coffee house, where she met art professor Adrian Korbel. Amber audited Adrian's class, but it wasn't long before Amber and Adrian started sleeping together.

While delivering a Jabot gown, Amber met Katherine Chancellor, Genoa City's most prominent citizen. Katherine, a former wild child, saw a lot of herself in Amber and let her in on the fact that she had once switched the baby of her longtime nemesis, Jill Foster Abbott. Jill's "son", Phillip Chancellor II, had died nearly twenty years earlier, but Katherine started remembering details about Jill's biological child. Amber wanted to help Katherine make things right, so Amber started looking into the child's whereabouts.

Amber's search led her to Cane Ashby, who had come to Genoa City from Australia looking for his mother. When Amber figured out that Cane was Jill's missing biological son, and heir to the Chancellor millions, Amber took Cane to Las Vegas to get married under the guise of keeping him in the country. But Cane changed his mind about marrying Amber, so she drugged him and called on Alison, who dressed up as Cane for "his" wedding to Amber. Cane believed Amber's story that he was too drunk to remember the ceremony. Amber staged power outages and a robbery at their meager apartment so she and Cane would be invited to live in the sumptuous Chancellor mansion.

Amber became friends with young Daniel Romalotti, who had helped her find information about Cane's lineage. To thank Daniel, Amber showed him her nude pictures on the web site she'd made with Alison, leading to Daniel becoming addicted to porn and infuriating Daniel's wife, Lily Winters. Amber began designing again and got some her work featured on a show called Extreme Catwalk. The designs were well-received, but Lily had come backstage to confront Amber about the naked photos, not realizing Amber's mic was already live. The argument was captured on tape and leaked onto the Internet, sabotaging Amber's return to fashion and destroying Daniel and Lily's marriage.

"Plum," an ex-boyfriend of Amber's, dropped by the Jabot boutique and told Amber to get him a job at Chancellor Industries or he would expose her pornographic past to Cane. Later, when Plum turned up dead next to a satchel full of cash, Amber, Daniel, and Daniel's friend, Kevin Fisher, buried the body and hid the money, which they swore they wouldn't touch. Amber broke her promise and dipped into it to pay for a demo tape, unaware that she was being watched.

The walls closed in on Amber as Treasury agent Bonachek and Plum's friend Carson came looking for the money. In addition, Cane became suspicious of Amber, did some digging, and found out his marriage to Amber was a fraud. However, when Amber was kidnapped, Cane helped Daniel and Kevin look for her. Bonachek wasn't from the Treasury, and he imprisoned Cane along with Amber and Carson. Amber found a nail file and freed herself and Cane, but was promptly arrested upon returning home. Cane surprised Amber by bailing her out.

Plum's money wasn't where Amber had helped hide it, but Amber became convinced that Jill's boyfriend, Ji Min Kim, knew where it was. Amber went to Ji Min's hotel suite to have a look around and found herself standing over Ji Min's dead body. Later, Amber saved Jill, who had been trapped in a fire set by Ji Min's murderer, and the missing money was found in Ji Min's suite. After Amber testified against Bonachek, the charges against Amber were dropped.

When the parking lot at the Clear Springs Casino caved in, Amber was trapped in her car, but managed to break a window and escape it. Amber found Katherine and stayed with her until they were rescued, but not before they both had suffered oxygen depravation. Daniel and Amber's friendship intensified, and Daniel raised an eyebrow when he saw a supposedly broke Amber spending money she shouldn't otherwise have. Amber lobbied to win a modeling contract as the Fresh Face of Jabot by masquerading as "Marina," but ultimately Cane recognized her and ripped her wig off in public.

Freshly divorced, Amber and Daniel got drunk one night and made love, later afraid it would spoil their friendship. They were also hired at Restless Style magazine, and Amber promptly rented herself a penthouse. Daniel knew Amber didn't make enough money for that, and was shocked when he found Plum's money in her possession. Kevin forced Amber and Daniel to burn it, but Amber's fortune changed again when Katherine offered to invest in a fashion line Amber wanted to design.

Amber and Daniel fell in love and moved in together. When Daniel's rock star father, Danny Romalotti, wanted to take Daniel on the road with him, Daniel swore to Amber he'd be faithful. Amber kept herself busy helping Katherine with her memoirs and working at Restless Style. But neither Danny nor Daniel's mother, Phyllis Summers, were happy about Daniel and Amber's relationship, so Danny snapped a photo of Daniel partying with another girl, and Phyllis made sure Amber saw it. Amber was so upset that she had comfort sex with Adrian. When Daniel returned and professed his innocence, Amber confessed her dalliance with Adrian, causing Daniel to walk out on her.

Amber was jealous when Daniel took an interest in Colleen Carlton, so Amber attended one of Daniel's art gallery showings on the arm of the mysterious "Liam," who turned out to be none other than Jabot heir Billy Abbott. But after Daniel and Amber both called in to the radio show Loveline as "Herve" and "Marina" and lamented their lost love, they reunited.

Katherine died in a car wreck, and a devastated Amber received a sizeable chunk of Katherine's estate, which Amber invested in her fashion line. Amber also made sure that Katherine's autobiography, Live Until I Die, was published. The tome factored into Kevin's claim that Katherine was still alive, as years ago, Katherine had been successfully impersonated by a grifter named Marge. Amber initially suspected that Kevin had killed Katherine, but soon she came to share Kevin's conviction that it was Marge who had perished instead.

Since everyone believed that the very much alive Katherine was Marge, Amber helped Kevin break into a pawn shop to steal a ring that could help prove Katherine's identity. But Clint Radisson, who had engineered the infamous Katherine/Marge switch, arrived to get a piece of Katherine's estate for himself. Clint kidnapped Katherine and her maid, Esther Valentine, hungry for Esther's inheritance. Amber studied a note Katherine left behind and noticed that the first letters of each sentence spelled out "Clint." Later, Amber met Clint, who lied he had seen Katherine leaving Genoa City. Clint's ex-wife, Gina Roma, filled Amber in on his Katherine/Marge switch, prompting Amber and Kevin to search for Katherine.

Amber and Kevin tracked Clint to the motel where he was holding Katherine, but Clint subdued Kevin and drugged him, hoping to frame Kevin for an explosion he rigged to kill Esther and Katherine. Clint locked Kevin in the trunk of his car and took off with him, while Amber saved Katherine and Esther with the help of Kevin's mother, Gloria Fisher Abbott.

Kevin, who had a history of mental illness stemming from a traumatic childhood, reverted to that time, thinking Clint was his abusive step-father, Tom Fisher. Clint pretended to be Tom and forced Kevin to rob banks in a chipmunk disguise. Amber recognized Kevin's scarf in a surveillance tape and went after him, finding Kevin near the scene of his latest crime, where he had been shot. Amber helped Kevin get away. But Clint had died suddenly, and a delusional Kevin locked Amber in a closet with Clint's corpse, and later in the coffin Kevin was building. Kevin held Amber at gunpoint and made her rob banks with him, but his gunshot wound had put his life at risk, so Amber convinced Kevin they should turn themselves in. The governor ultimately gave Amber and Kevin a full pardon for their crimes, given the circumstances.

Katherine decided to have her memoirs made into a feature film, and recruited Amber to adapt the book with screenwriter Nina Webster, though Nina and Amber disagreed on the direction the movie should take. In the meantime, a federal agent asked Daniel to forge a painting for a sting meant to entrap art thieves. But the federal agent was a phony who later turned up dead, and Daniel was framed for his murder. It was an elaborate ruse by Deacon Sharpe, who had returned for Amber. Deacon told Amber he had evidence that could exonerate Daniel, which he would only hand over if Amber slept with him. Amber reluctantly made love to Deacon, and Deacon made sure Daniel could hear it over the phone, the same way Deacon had done years before with the Forresters and Bridget. Daniel turned his back on Amber after Deacon told him about Amber's checkered past in Los Angeles.

Deacon coerced Amber into marrying him, but Daniel stopped the ceremony by offering to find the original painting that Daniel had forged, which Deacon was supposed to sell. Deacon agreed, and Amber pretended to be Gloria to gain admission to a safe deposit box held by Kevin's deceased father, Tom. Deacon confessed to Amber that he had been working for someone: Sarah Smythe, who had wanted revenge on Daniel's mother, Phyllis, for killing Sarah's sister, Sheila Carter! The federal agent had been killed by Ryder Callahan, Tom's son with Sheila. Eventually, Daniel was found innocent, and he and Amber married in a simple rooftop ceremony.

Before Deacon went to jail, Amber asked if he knew the whereabouts of "their" son, Little Eric. Deacon admitted that he had sent the boy to live with Amber's mother, Tawny. But soon Little Eric travelled across the country alone to find Amber because Tawny had left him alone for days. Amber was overjoyed to have "her" son back, but Daniel scoffed that he wasn't ready for children. Later, when Ryder and his twin sister, Daisy, were still targeting Daniel (including trying to make Amber think Daniel had slept with Daisy), Amber begged Daniel to move away with her and Little Eric. Daniel maintained that he didn't want children, effectively ending his short marriage to Amber, who indeed took Little Eric and left Genoa City.

Amber returned to Los Angeles, having placed Little Eric in a school in Central California. She immediately got a job designing at Jackie M, the fashion house that used to be Spectra Fashions. Amber reminisced with her ex-husband, Rick, though they didn't reunite. Instead, Amber fixed her eye on her Jackie M boss, Nick Marone, even kissing him in a steam room. Nick wasn't interested, and worried that Amber's designs weren't up to par, so Amber went to work on Oliver Jones, a photographer at Forrester Creations, to get her hands on some Forrester designs and copy them. Amber got Oliver drunk and took pictures of the designs, but before Jackie M could present them, Forrester found out about the copies and showed the originals first. Amber had nowhere to go after Nick fired her. A sympathetic Oliver let Amber stay at his apartment after she offered a sincere apology for using him.

Oliver was lonely after his ex-girlfriend, Hope Logan, moved on with Liam Cooper Spencer. Amber and Oliver enjoyed a brief fling, and Amber even tried to help Oliver get Hope back by dressing up as a limo driver to distract Liam. But when Amber found out Liam was part of the Spencer publishing dynasty, Amber made sure to escort the drunken Liam home from his coming-out party. Liam fell and hit his head, so when he woke up with Amber next to him, he believed her claim that they'd had sex. But the trick was on Amber when she found out she was pregnant.

Amber was miffed when Tawny showed up looking for a place to stay. Amber admitted she was carrying Oliver's child, but when Tawny heard about the incident with Liam, Tawny convinced a reluctant Amber to pretend the baby was Liam's, reminiscent of when they had tried to pass of Becky's baby as Rick's. The deception, which included faking a DNA test, ruined Liam's relationship with Hope and sparked outrage in Liam's father, the powerful Bill Spencer. When Liam tried to help Amber light a pilot light in Tawny's trailer and was injured in an explosion, Bill became convinced Amber had tried to kill Liam, and wanted vengeance.

Bill offered Amber an expensive cliffside house in Malibu, California. But Amber didn't know that Bill had bought that particular house because the guardrail was loose. Bill planned to have the pregnant Amber plunge to her death, and carefully lured Amber toward the guardrail. But as Amber was admiring the view, a branch fell and knocked Amber over the cliff. Bill assumed Amber was dead, but ultimately she was pulled to safety by Steffy Forrester.

Liam and Hope underwent a dizzying array of makeups and breakups as they struggled with how to handle Amber's pregnancy. Liam spent time with Amber, and they actually did make love, upsetting Hope. Amber and Tawny's scheme was almost exposed when the lab tech who faked the DNA test tried to extort money from them, but the real moment of truth came when Amber gave birth to an African-American baby! In addition to her tryst with Oliver, Amber had embarked on a "friends with benefits" relationship with Marcus Walton Forrester, who stepped up to take responsibility for his daughter. Having finally carried a baby to term after two miscarriages, Amber had an epiphany and vowed to do right by her daughter. Amber and Marcus named the child Rosie, a derivative of Amber's given name of Ambrosia.

Amber wanted Marcus to be a family with her and Rosie. Marcus was happy with his girlfriend, Dayzee Leigh, but assured Amber that he would be there for their daughter. Later, Amber saw that Rick was experimenting with his own designs, which needed work. Amber touched them up and gave them to Rick, trying to make up for her misdeeds of the past. Rick and Amber kissed, and he agreed to let her be his silent collaborator. When Forrester intern Beverly showed an interest in Rick, Amber warned Beverly to stay away.

The Forresters were furious when they found out Rick's designs were Amber's work. But Rick campaigned for Amber, and the designs sold well. However, that didn't stop Brooke from recruiting ingenue Caroline Spencer to replace Amber in Rick's life. Rick, who had re-established an informal relationship with Amber at best, took a shine to Caroline, so Amber doctored some photos of Rick to make it appear that he was a cross-dresser. The ploy worked, and Caroline distanced herself from Rick. Meanwhile, Rick's half-sister, Hope, had become dependent on antianxiety pills. Thinking that befriending Hope would help her with Rick, Amber scored more pills for Hope on the Internet, ignoring the possibility that the on-line drugs might be tainted.

Ultimately, Hope busted Amber for both the cross-dressing photos and the tainted pills, and Rick told a heartbroken Amber that he never wanted to see her again. Amber once more removed herself from the lives of the Forresters, except Marcus, who was seen with Rosie and occasionally mentioned Amber's presence in Rosie's life. It is assumed that Amber still lives in Los Angeles.

In August 2013, Amber received word that her old friend, Katherine Chancellor had died. A celebration of her life was held September third, and Amber was an invited guest per Katherine's wishes. Amber lamented that it had taken this sad occasion to bring her back to Genoa City. All of Katherine's loved ones had words to say about her, Amber among them. She agreed with Nikki's comments that Katherine had saved her life too in many ways. Afterward they each put a flower on the altar next to her urn. Then Murphy revealed a plaque saying Chancellor Park. In loving memory of Katherine Chancellor. Amber stayed for the impromptu wedding of Paul Williams and Christine Blair, helping out by providing music from her ever-present cell phone.
