Friends and family gathered Wednesday afternoon to honor the life of 4-year-old Athena Brownfield.

Every person was given a purple ribbon to wear. Purple was Athena’s favorite color.

The funeral was filled with folks that knew Athena, and those her heard her story and fell in love with her.

Some told News 9 that they traveled hours to pay their respects to a young girl taken too soon.

Several people that assisted with her case were there as well along with a local riding group that raises awareness for abused children. 

“A lot of us have kids. It’s very emotional. I have a four year old little girl so it hits home when there’s babies involved and kids involved. It’s tough definitely. It hits home for a lot of people,” member of a local riding club said. 

Everything for Athena’s service was offered to the family free of charge.
