Ta'Miya Watson, the 5-year-old kindergartner who died after being hit by a school bus Monday, was laid to rest on Sunday.

Her funeral was held at the Greater Zion Baptist Church in Macon.

Ta'Miya attended Barden Elementary in Macon, and the school's principal was one of the speakers at the funeral, along with some of her teachers and her uncle Willie Watson.

They say Ta'Miya brightened their lives with her personality, and they all shared their fondest memories of her.

On Friday, the community gathered to hold a candlelight vigil for Ta'Miya. They gathered at the intersection of Bloomfield and Virginia Drive, where the accident happened, to leave messages and keepsakes for Ta'Miya.
