Sad News - Orlando shooting this morning was at Fiamma

Disgruntled employee - kills five, then himself. Seven employees survived.

Say a prayer(or whatever) please for the victims and their familys, friends and loved ones. I do not have any news yet about the guys I interface with. Really sad and close to home.

Wow. Always bad to hear news like this, but it hits even closer to home when it's a company we've dealt with directly or indirectly.

Such a shame that mental health is swept under the carpet in this country... when it's clear that half the country needs treatment. I thought Fiamma was an Italian company. When I had to order parts, I had to get them from Italy.

Wow, I just got service after being in the mountains for a few days. I was hoping I hadn't missed something crazy like this.

Just found out all three guys I dealt with are gone.
Kevin Clark
Kevin Lawson
Jeff Roberts

RIP Guys. Thank you for being so awesome and helping so much. There are no words, there is no reason, and there is no purpose for what happened to you and your families/friends. I am so, so sad. Really hits hard. Ramsey last year and then this. Wtf.

Went back and was looking at emails from the Fiamma guys. This one from Kevin Clark less than 60 days ago was in response to my needing a tracking number, in so many ways was moving for me:

"Sorry Ray, my day ran out. I will retrieve this info for you Monday as we are closed tomorrow.

Happy Easter.
KC"

Kevin's (and his buds) "life" ran out today and there will be no more Mondays for him and the others, and "life" is closed for all of them.

Transition peacefully to your next gig. Please do what you can to help the rest of us still here.

Thank you for everything, you all were pros, it was a pleasure working with all of you.
Peace,
Ray

Damn, that sucks Ray.

Saw on the news this morning that it was an RV related company. Then Fiamma from your OP. Then that you had personal dealings with the deceased
