Mail’s here ! You have a letter from Heaven…

I have been off on the news of the weird lately but oh do I have a good one for you.
Chet Fitch died 88 years of age last October. Fitch, a humorous fellow, gave his family a last little prank even after he died.

Come Christmas his family started to receive letters written in Fitch’s handwriting with the return address being “heaven”. He states in the letters that the “Big guy” (God) let him have a little moment to write his letters. He seals one letter saying “I’ll probably be seeing you (some of you sooner than you think)”.

Now this is no Ashton Kutcher , but I would have been freaked out. First off the guy is dead. Then you start getting letters two months later from Heaven ?! Kudos to this guy. He had been planning this for more than two decades alongside his barber. He had determination. I bet Ashton Kutcher was sitting around when he was 14 saying “I’m gonna get one of the N’sync kids , watch, they’ll be a group called N’sync and I’ll prank one watch..WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO….HHAAA! Punk!”


Instead of Christmas cards he should have written that he didn’t really die per say but traveled to the future. Suggested a few lottery numbers to play and drive his family a little crazy over the years. Randomly suggesting things like on July 24,2011 go outside , put one hand in your head and the other on your nose….wait for spaceship. Then send the other one the next day saying, you missed it ,you forgot your god damn peace fingers! Now they think we’re the enemy! Start building shelter as of now.

Wasn’t Blast from the past something like that?

    Wow! I love stories like this. Kind of sweet if he arranged for a friend or something to help him do this ๐Ÿ™‚

    yeah he did. He kept giving the letters to his barber friend and just kept updating the dates and the hand writting so it wouldn’t seem old. A week before he died he told his friend that he was probably getting sick of waiting to send the letters, but that he thought the time might come soon. It was very sweet.

    Thats exactly what I thought gev. Even though his family was going through a diffcult moment he still managed to put a smile on their faces and helped them go cope.
