A family in Kentucky fulfilled a dying man’s wish to leave a waiter or waitress with a $500 tip and the special moment was captured on video circling the internet Friday.
Aaron Collins, 30, died on July 7 and he didn’t have enough money to make his wish come true, according to an article on Yahoo.com .
His family reportedly raised the money on the website aaroncollins.org after a few days and went to Puccini’s restaurant to have some pizza for lunch.
Then the moment arrived. It was captured on video and posted to YouTube.com.

In the video, the $500 tip is handed to a waitress who is told about the wish.
The waitress asks, “Are you serious?” While still in disbelief she hugs the family member who handed over the tip and asks about Aaron.
She also said she is going to share the money and give some to people in the kitchen.
The family said if people keep donating they will keep giving away $500.
According to aaroncollins.org Friday morning, more than $10,000 in donations have been collected since Thursday night and enough money was raised to change the lives of 23 people with $500 each. Read more about Aaron and see the website.
