Guestbook

My apologies for not being able to attend Mr. Winton's services. I started at Phelps Fan in June 1977. I worked with Elbert for 10 months before moving to a different position in the shop.He was always a man who spoke his mind. I was always respectful to him, not because he demanded it, but because he deserved it. We became good friends and I always enjoyed his visits after he retired. I last saw him in February and I had the opportunity to ask him about his relationship with the Lord. He told me that he would go to church with his daughter when he had the opportunity. I pray that he was at peace God. My prayers are also with you, Mrs. Reynolds, and your family in your time of grief.May God bless you.
