ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - One man is giving out $500 tips to random waiters and waitresses around the country.

He just made a stop in St. Louis at City Diner on South Grand.

Seth Collins is doing this because it was his little brother Aaron's last wish. It's believed he may have committed suicide last summer.

The last line of Aaron's will read, "Leave an awesome tip and I don't mean 25 percent, I mean $500."

Lori Radake was the lucky recipient of the whopping tip.

"It kind of choked me up a little bit. I've never gotten a tip that big," she said.

Collins is stopping in all 50 states this summer. St. Louis is his only Missouri stop.
