Tania Rangel started a GoFundMe for Modesto Fuentes, whom she bought empanadas from.
Fuentes walks six miles selling empanadas for $1 to get enough money to put a new cross over his wife's grave and eventually retire.
Wednesday, Rangel presented Fuentes with a check for $15,000.
Fuentes plans to lay a new cross at his wife's grave in October.
