This week, the “Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down” columnists would like to honor Annalise Curtis.
We were extremely saddened and shocked to hear of her passing and send our deepest condolences to her friends and family.
We lived next door to her freshman year and she was a beautiful shining light for us during that time. There are of course too many memories to list, but we will always remember them and keep them with us.
Here are a few: We once made a huge batch of dark and stormies in an empty pretzel jar together.
She introduced us to Tana French novels, Veronica Mars, and the wonders of Kurt Vonnegut.
We choreographed a dance together to Simonand Garfunkel’s “Punky’s Dilemma.”
She painted her red glasses blue and had two little cacti in her room.
