Singh’s family told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview this week that they rushed from India to be with him after the shooting. Now they spend most of their waking hours at his hospital bedside in Milwaukee.

The three other people wounded in the rampage in Oak Creek are out of the hospital.

Singh’s sons smiled Wednesday, August 29th as they shared stories of their father’s lifelong efforts to clothe and educate poor children in India.

Forty-four-year-old Raghuvinder Singh of New Delhi says he takes comfort in knowing his father’s fate is now in God’s hands.
