We cover these events all the time, but there something about a camera lens that shields us from it. It’s not until it happens to someone you know that the pain truly comes home. One of our own b-rollers, Jim Sitton was hosting Thanksgiving dinner in Jupiter, FL when a guest at the party began shooting with a handgun, killing 4 – including Sitton’s six-year-old daughter Makayla.
Jim is a photog at WPTV, in West Palm Beach, FL, and a b-roll.net AWARD winner. Read WPTV’s coverage of the event. Here’s other coverage of the news. Many well wishes, thoughts and prayers have been expressed by b-rollers in the b-roll.net FORUM.
Even at this darkest time, Jim stopped by to post a few words on the FORUM. “She was–Is the greatest joy of my life and I praise God For blessing us with almost 7 years.”
My heart goes out to Jim and his family. May his faith keep him strong.
UPDATE: We are collecting donations to send to the Sitton family. You can send money via our shopping cart at: http://www.b-roll.net/store/5-donation-for-jim-sitton-s-family.html. We plan to send flowers and the remain proceeds will be sent to the family. Read more here…
