Ki's Founder Passes Away

The Founder of Ki's in Cardiff, Ki herself, has passed away at the age of 88.
She died Wednesday, in a retirement home, having struggled with Alzheimers for a couple of years and a recent broken hip. 
This woman was really a head of her time. Opening a small organic hand-juicing storefront decades ago, on Birmingham, and working it single handedly for years, with her long red hair piled up on her head. 
Customers would line up outside the small window stall to order, before the restaurant opened to become the large oceanfront site currently.
I spoke with her daughter yesterday. There's a celebration of life next Tuesday evening at Ki's open to the public at 6pm. All welcome.
