Happy Holidays

Man Sends Christmas Cards From 'Heaven'

POSTED: 11:27 am EST December 26, 2007

ASHLAND, Ore. -- Friends of Chet Fitch may have been surprised to get holiday cards from him this year.

He died in October at age 88.

But for years, the Oregon man who was known for his sense of humor had been planning one final joke, with the help of his barber.

He had written Christmas cards to his friends and gave them to barber Patty Dean for mailing after he died.

He kept the mailing list updated and gave her more money when postal rates went up.

Dean told the Daily Tidings in Ashland, Ore., that a few months ago, Fitch told her that she would probably be able to mail the cards this year. He died a week later.

The cards carry a return address of "Heaven."
