NEW DELHI (AP) -- For 16 years, Lokinder Kaur waited patiently for the day her husband would be reunited with her and their children.
That dream died with him in a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.
Ranjeet Singh never came home even once in all those years. He worked at a grocery store during the week and volunteered at the Sikh gurdwara on weekends.
He promised his family he was doing what had to be done to get a green card so they could come join him.
He called every few days, even as the months dragged into years.
Kaur said she spoke to Singh just the day before a gunman entered the temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, and shot worshippers as they prepared for services on Sunday.
