I am so very sad to hear about the passing of Mr. Phelps. He was my teacher for 2 years at Carver. I owe him a great deal. In 7th grade I decided I hated school and wanted to quit. I actually did for a big part of the year. With a good talking to and a lot of very kind words, he made me see how important my education was and from that day on I was a changed person. I even graduated high school with honors. I remember being so sad when he got sick and our class gave him a party. He told me he was going to be fine, he had to be there to keep me in line! He never forgot me either. I would see him at Christmas time helping Mr. Yonce selling trees. He would always say "How are you doing Ms. Cothran"? With a broken heart I say Thank You Mr. Phelps! Heaven sure did get an amazing angel when they got you!
