Waitress receives $500 tip as part of dying man's wish

A Lexington man's dying wish of providing a random act of kindness and generosity has been fulfilled.

Aaron Collins, a computer technician, died July 7 and his family says his last wish was to go out to eat pizza and leave the server a $500 tip, but he didn't have the money to make his wish come true.

Collins' family raised the money through a website.

A few days later, the family had lunch at Puccini's in Chevy Chase and Collins' last wish was accomplished.

His family handed their waitress $500.

The family captured the event on video, which has gone viral on Yahoo! And Fark.

The family's website continues to accept donations.

They plan to give big tips every time $500 is raised.
