    I have a special place in my heart for MaryAnn. She showed so much kindness to me from the time I was a teenager on through my adult years. I’ll always remember when she showed up unexpectedly at my ward one Sunday years ago because she knew a member of our ward who was leaving on a mission, I believe. I hadn’t seen her in many years. When I saw her I had that feeling of coming home. She put on an amazing bridal shower for me, and was just so special to me. My parents loved her so much and I’m sure they are happy to see her again. She raised wonderful children. Michelle is one of the most special people I know on this earth. We, the Phelps’, love the Hoopes family with all our hearts. We know your mom is having some beautiful reunions and feeling joy that she hasn’t felt in a long time. I’m so grateful for her influence in my life.

    Mary Ann was a dear friend and neighbor whom I loved from our first meeting. She was a wonderful and beautiful lady and I am blessed to have known her. Her skills in the kitchen were legendary and to be invited to dine at her table was a privilege and a treasured event. I miss her.
