A Secret Santa has told an Ohio man not to expect any more pecan pies, which arrived mysteriously for 35 years.

Willis Welch says the pie that showed up at his Columbus home during the recent holiday season was accompanied by a note that said, "It has been a great ride."

The person who signed it "Pie Fairy" also wrote: "My wings are shorter now and I am a little too fat to fly anymore. But I still love you!!"

The 87-year-old Welch still doesn't know who was sending his perennial pastries, though whoever did it knew him well enough to know of his fondness for pecan pies. Welch believes the first one came in 1976.

His two daughters have denied any involvement.
