    my name is Heather Johnson, I work at the Walmart Super Center with Josh. In the little time that I got to know Josh, I learned that he was an outgoing teen. I remember he would sit there on our breaks and talk about his mother and step dad alot. He would always say how he wanted to help other. The last time I talked to Josh he was talking about how he wanted to meet that right girl. I laughed and said "Josh, your time will come and she will so lucky to have such a kind hearted and sweet guy like you." He laughed and told me to hush. He was a good co-worker and I will truely miss seeing him around or when I walk in Wal-Mart and he will say "Heather, get to work." He was a good friend and I will never forget him and the way I have seen he help so many people in the little time I got to sit down and got th know him.
