Victim's families planning funeral together


OAK CREEK (WKOW) -- The families of the six shooting victims at the Oak Creek Temple are dealing with their grief together.

They gathered at the Kaleka home Wednesday afternoon to finalize plans for Friday's funeral.

Amardeep Kaleka is serving as the glue that's holding the families together.

He is the son of Satwant Singh Kaleka, the president of the Oak Creek Temple, who was killed in Sunday's violence.

"What's been amazing is we're grieving as a family together, but we are grieving as a community and as a society and maybe a whole world civilization for the first time in a long time,"says Kaleka.

A wake and visitation will be held for the victims on Friday at the Oak Creek High School gymnasium.
