One thought on “Kala R. Athey

  1. Oh my! I’m just now hearing about this! Last time I talked to her was back before she graduated! I’ve tried reaching out to her through the years but couldn’t find a way to contact her. I used to date her. Was a jerk about our breake up! Let my sister drive a wedge between us as she never liked Kala. Kayla and I used to hang out at her house when she and her parents lived in Linthicum MD off of Nursery rd. She loved to go swimming as well as volley ball. Plus we used to sit in her room or on her porch and talk for hours while listening to music. I wished I had a chance to get in touch with her. Now I wished I could have said goodbye! I’m sorry Kala! You still held a special place in my heart after all these years!
