John lost his pal Jack Pinto in last week's shooting, and his sadness is heart-shreddingly palpable in a letter he wrote to his departed bud, photographed and published by USA Today reporter Yamiche Alcindor.
In his farewell note, John writes:
You are my best friend.
We had fun together.
I will miss you.
I will talk to you in my prayers.
I love you Jack.
