Sombre reflection filled the second floor of the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Surrey on Tuesday night, as over a thousand temple members and people from the Lower Mainland gathered for a peace prayer and vigil for victims of the Wisconsin Sikh temple massacre on Sunday. 

A funeral service will be held on Friday at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. The Guru Nanak Gurdwara will send two priests to assist in overseeing the funeral, as well as $5,000 from its fund for victims.
