I read the obituary in the Chronicle and quickly went back to my days of going to Herbs for a meatball sandwich or any of the others offerings. I played a lot of tennis at the courts on Vicente ( I think it was) and usually went to Herbs for lunch. In those days I could easily down the meatballs and go off and play 3 more sets. Certainly not an option today!
Sad to see it is no longer but just reinforces for me to enjoy and appreciate even the small but joyful parts of life.
