Family Leaves Pizza Server $500 Tip in Deceased Relative’s Honor
A loving family recently fulfilled a deceased relative’s last wish by eating at a local restaurant and lavishing the waitress with a massive $500 tip. Fortunately for us, they captured the touching moment on video.
30-year-old Aaron Collins died last week, and his parting wish was that his family buy a pizza and leave the waiter or waitress an “awesome” tip.
So, they traveled to Puccini’s Smiling Teeth in Lexington, KY, ordered food and surprised the waitress with a major gratuity. “I don’t even know what to do,” she said. “That’s crazy.”
Since Copeland didn’t have any money to fulfill the wish on his own, his family started collecting donations via a website. So far, they’ve collected $10,000, and intend to give the money away to food servers as long as it lasts.
According to Collins’ family, he was “generous” and “incredibly sentimental.” “We think he just wanted to provide a random act of kindness and generosity for someone he thought was underappreciated; the kind of thing that would make a lasting impact they would never forget,” said Collins’ brother, Seth. It’s safe to say his act of kindness from beyond the grave made an impact.
