Man Sent Christmas Cards from Heaven


A man from Oregon, who had a good sense of humor when alive, tricked his friends and family sending them Christmas cards having a message from heaven. The cards arrived after he passed away.

Chet Fitch, who died at age 88 in October, prepared to give a last laugh to his family and friends when he had written 34 Christmas cards with the return address "Heaven".

The idea to have a last joke by sending messages from afterlife came to Fitch two decades ago and his friend Patty Dean, 57 year old told that they prepared the postcards beforehand and she just had to update the mailing list to send them after he would pass away.

The Christmas cards read like that: "I asked Big Guy if I could sneak back and send some cards. At first he said no; but at my insistence he finally said, 'Oh well, what the heaven, go ahead but don't (tarry) there.' Wish I could tell you about things here but words cannot explain."

"Better get back as Big Guy said he stretched a point to let me in the first time, so I had better not press my luck. I'll probably be seeing you (some sooner than you think). Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. Chet Fitch"

This year the old man almost predicted his death and a week before he deceased he said to his friend that most probably she would have to send the Christmas cards soon.
