It brings us great sadness to announce the passing of a close family friend and supporter of Shakthi, Rose Cruz (Romeo, our head waiter's wife). We will always remember her for her outgoing personality and how she lights up the restaurant as she walks in. We have lost a member of our Shakthi family, her smile will truly be missed. Your prayers and support for Romeo and his two daughters would be appreciated during this difficult time. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel 💛
