COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -
It's been almost 2 years since Steve Kim, a well-known Columbia restaurant owner, was shot to death while working inside his restaurant Dino's on Decker Boulevard.
But Kim's restaurant remained opened despite the turmoil of his death.
"We've been seeing a lot of our customers come back, being excited," said Kim's son-in-law, Ryan Long. "The food is still the same."
Long says it's taken two years for customers to trickle back in to Dino's because the restaurant is marked by Kim's death.
Kim was shot while working inside. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says Kim's killer took his own life after a robbery spree around the city.
"I definitely probably have a darker look on the world now, somewhat," said Long. "But my wife and I, it made us stronger."
The family decided Long would re-open the restaurant and leave a career in the ministry. His mother-in-law works by his side, and business is back after a slow build up.
Long says stepping up security in the restaurant is one of his main goals, but he's not keeping his eyes closed to what else is important.
"Also believing things will be better and also believing things will be better in the future is really helping," said Long.
There have been tears and frustrations after hearing the man who killed their patriarch was a career criminal.
"My wife and I, we actually pray for his family and also our family as well," said Long.
As the prayers continue, the Long family continues to serve not only customers in the restaurant, but in the community as well.
