MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- As the families of the victims lost in the Molson Coors shooting search for healing, members of the Milwaukee community nationwide are sharing their words of support.

From signs posted throughout the city to a moment of silence before today's Brewers spring training game, the message "Milwaukee Strong" rang clear.

A Milwaukee printing company Brew City Brand is offering that message in a more personalized way -- printing "Miller Strong" on t-shirts.

"Just hoping we can let them know we're thinking about them," co-owner George Keppler said.

He said his company has worked closely with Molson Coors for years and he still has a strong relationship with the company and its employees.

"They took a chance on some young local guys like us and we still work with them to this day," he said.

Keppler's business is printing 1,000 t-shirts, but they're not for sale. He said the shirts are only going to Molson Coors as a gift for employees and their families.

"They really have a place in our heart," he said.

Thousands of miles from Milwaukee, another Miller Valley neighbor wanted to share its message for the victims.

At spring training in Arizona, the Brewers held a moment of silence and manager Craig Counsell spoke from the heart.

"The campus is less than a mile from Miller Park so we're connected," he said. "In addition to the prayers and the thoughts and condolences, we gotta do our part."

Counsell grew up in the Milwaukee area and as he spoke to reporters he was at a loss for words, calling the shooting a wake up call.

"What's happening isn't complicated and it should push us all to action," he said.
