PRINCETON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – When 19-year-old Princeton Walmart cashier John Lopez selflessly paid for a woman’s groceries on Monday, he didn’t expect anyone else to notice.

But one woman did, when she posted Lopez’s good deed on Facebook and praised the cashier for taking care of the woman’s $110 grocery bill.
