OAK CREEK - On Thursday, another dignitary was to pay respects to the fallen in the Oak Creek Sikh temple massacre.

First Lady Michelle Obama was to head to Oak Creek Thursday to privately visit with shooting victims, their families and Sikh Temple members.

Victims' families were still trying to make sense of the violence that led to seven people dying during the shootout on August 5th, including shooter Wade Page.

"Outside of her words, taking the time out to do this, that says a tremendous amount.  The words are icing on the cake, but it's what she's doing," said Amardeep Kaleka, the son of one of the victims.

The meeting was to come following a campaign stop in Milwaukee.
