John was baptized when he was 17. Layne was his young men's president. Beyond that Layne and Anadeane let John live with them for a while before he left on a mission. They became family.
Now they are, in effect, grandparents to our kids.
Okay, more backstory.
Analee is, in part, named for Anadeane. I spent so much time looking at names that it all became a blur before Analee was born. I couldn't tell you where her name really came from. Later, however, we realized something. Not only do Anadeane and Analee share a syllable, but John's mom's name is Betty Lee.
Anadeane + Betty Lee = Analee
So, in honor of some lovely women, we reverse engineered her name and are even more pleased with it than we were before.
Back to the future.
Analee turned 7 this summer and, for the first time since she was a baby, we visited her namesake!
