Sunshine Royston chose Sept. 20, the day of her late father's birthday, as the day of her wedding. She was a year old when Chet Royston died in a motorcycle accident in Baltimore. Now the relatives who had helped arrange her wedding are preparing for her funeral. Royston and six of her friends had arranged to use a stretch limousine for her bachelorette party, which included time at the Power Plant in the Inner Harbor, said her maternal grandfather, Fred Thiess. About 4:30 a.m. yesterday, a tractor-trailer collided with the limousine in the 4000 block of E. Monument St., killing Royston.
