WAUWATOSA, Wis. - A Kentucky man is fulfilling his brother's last wish by leaving unusually big tips - including $500 for one Wisconsin waitress.

Twenty-year-old Marleigh Fiedler served Seth Collins a junior pizza with tomatoes and olives Tuesday at Balistreri's Italian American Ristorante in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. The order netted her a $500 tip.

Fiedler says she couldn't believe it when Collins gave her the cash.

Collins says his brother, Aaron, died more than a year ago, leaving a will that asked his family to leave an unusually big tip for an unsuspecting server.

Collins made a video about the wish, and people began donating money to fulfill it. He tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that since then he has left big tips for 57 servers.
