Thousands of people are expected to gather Friday in Wisconsin to pay their final respects to the six worshippers killed in a shooting rampage at a Sikh temple on Sunday. Attorney General Eric Holder and other dignitaries plan to attend. After the service, mourners will return to the temple to begin two days of religious rites to honor the five men and one woman killed when a white supremacist, Army veteran Wade Michael Page, reportedly opened fire before the start of Sunday services, then shot himself in the head. "We want to pay homage to the spirits who are still in there," said Harpreet Singh, nephew of one of the victims.
