God Bless The Faithful Few, November 29, 2006 Please know that our love and prayers are with the Athey family at this sorrowful time. While in High School, our son, Steve, spent many hours at "Granny" Athey's house with Doug and Dwayne. If she wasn't at home, these boys would go through a window and she didn't mind at all. She was a treasure and will be missed by all who knew her. Bob & Pat Talley, November 29, 2006
