To Whom It May Concern,
Today I write in reference to several events of which I feel are quite important not just in reference for others’ religious and spiritual beliefs including for those with non-religious and non-spiritual beliefs, but my own in particular as well. I did go to the local Catholic Church to request information of who to speak with and was referred to the #Diocese of Dallas and Fort Worth, but because I think there is a need for the written aspects from me; this is why I write this. Though I have discussed and written about various aspects of what occurred before and after my dead-ex-husband as well what was that ‘marriage’ in my journal blog The Ornery PSA but also in my books “Finding A Silver Lining By: Susan MeeLing”, “Finding The Silver Lining By: Susan MeeLing”, and now the newer publication of mine “The Modern Day Book By: Reverend Susan MeeLing”; but I have also contacted various departments of law enforcement, religious, and spiritual organizations and groups as well though I have also been contacted by religious and spiritual organizations’ members.
One particular point in reference for this particular writing is when my dead-ex-husband had his funeral at #LaurelLandFuneralHome in the #Dallas/#FortWorth area of #Texas after having spoken with the Chief Warrant Officer 3, the Laurel Land Funeral Home had done everything they could within the arrangement they had with my ex-sister-in-law Susie Marie Nichols-Lopez as well as her and my dead-ex-husband’s mom Lydia Evongelina (?surname from the #DominicanRepublic?) Nichols as when talking with my ex-sister-in-law I had repeatedly told her, “Just let me go through what The Army has and it will be easier for everyone, instead of going through your own stuff. The Army has done a funeral before and they have the necessary instruments in place, for what they known needs to be done.”
Instead of listening to my warnings my ex-sister-in-law Susie (Birth Name:Susan) Marie Nichols-Lopez had wanted to be the center of attention during her brother’s funeral instead of letting her family grieve as normal human beings, as she was the one who wanted the limo service as well as all of the other aspects; only some of which happen during a military funeral. However because she and her sister Mary Evongelina (Nichols) Osteen had talked about various points they wanted for their mom of which I had already told them “I am allowing him not to be cremated for your mom’s spiritual beliefs, stop pushing me.” However those two wanted the center of attention, and they milked every second at the time as they have done in their lives which I guesstimate plenty of others can verify that sort of pattern of behavior for those two.
When I had arrived at Laurel Land Funeral Home and after I had spoken with the Chief Warrant Officer 3 and the whole ordeal there, it was not until the day of the event which I found out the Priest Susie Marie Nichols-Lopez and Mary Evongelina (Nichols) Osteen had grown up at that church with, would be performing the funeral ritual rights. I know I contacted Saint Anthony’s Cathedral in I think the Dallas Texas area; but because of my head injury on Psalm Sunday in 2000 as well as because of being in #Washington state maybe my memory was a little backwards, and it was #SaintPatricksCathedral which they went through or another one of which The #HolyRomanCatholicChurch would be able to verify; though I am not trying to make it difficult, I am just admitting where I could have accidentally gotten the name wrong. Maybe I was remembering #SanAntonio when that need to contact was, instead of the correct #CatholicChurch; of which I apologize for my mistake.
Nonetheless my dead-ex-husband Robert Walker Nichols was born 19 March 1976 and his death was 22 January 2008, he is buried at the #DallasFortWorthNationalCemetery, and he has an #Atheist marker on his tombstone.
Though I did prior write of the non-Catholic religious and spiritual items my ex-in-laws had put into the casket, the pictures my ex-in-laws did at the funeral home, and etcetera; I cannot explain the amount of disgust I felt from my ex-brother-in-law Tony W. Nichols as well as my-ex-brother-in-law David Osteen; both of which have military connections in different branches of The United States of America’s Armed Forces. I am fairly certain though Tony converted and became a reborn #SouthernBaptist, he is fairly religious and spiritual. I am also fairly certain David had been raised in a Catholic Orphanage of which by technicalities, I should not know because I do not recall him ever telling me that personally.
However at the time when the #PatriotRiders were outside of the church grounds after smoking a cigarette with them and then finding out the realities of what was to come, I went inside to warn the Priest at the Catholic Church the funeral ceremony. He did not know me as he did with my ex-sisters-in-law but I told him about my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury and the effects of, and though there were not many brightly visible tattoos in the same way as now; my haircut was similar to what it is now without the sides being waxed as well as the hair color of bright red, was similar but maybe a different shade of red. When we talked he did move the ceremony which was he had the funeral rights with the Eucarist ceremony at the church in the cafeteria, instead of within the Cathedral itself which was much better and relaxed me a bit at the time.
Though I was not raised Catholic which means I did not attend Catholic Church Development classes or anything of the like, I did go to #SaintJohnVianney High School in #Holmdel #NewJersey which did have a religious class. However, I do not think back then they taught about the Catholic Church’s funeral rights in the class. I could be wrong, though. The point being I should technically not have known to inform the Priest of the church, but I felt it was necessary. Later when I was in Washington state as I have said as well as have acknowledged, I contacted Saint Anthony’s Catholic Church to inform them of what occurred. I know there are people who would be able to verify records as well as look to the images my ex-in-laws took as well as knowing how my ex-sisters-in-law were and probably still are, they most likely posted online about the funeral and included the pictures in their posts. Thus, showing everyone of the non-Catholic religious items in the casket of their Atheist brother and probably also included a better picture than I posted of their dead-brother’s Dress Blues uniform which had all of the stolen valor on the jacket; despite having been informed by multiple people of the stolen valor on the Dress Blues. Thus, they tattled on themselves to the people who go on the internet well before I contacted the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
Though I did discuss with multiple people when I lived in San Antonio, #Carrollton, #Dallas, #CedarPark, #Austin, and #Irving Texas about what my ex-in-laws did in reference to the casket. It would not have been difficult for many of those people unlike me, to go look for the information and the images of to verify I was telling the truth the whole time. I am fairly certain Susie Marie Nichols-Lopez’ ex-husband Jose knew exactly what was wrong with that in more ways than I did at the time, and was able to inform the Catholic Church as well; not forgetting their Grandmother who flew to Texas from #NewYorkCity to go to her grandson’s funeral, probably knew more in reference to the older customs for such.
In addition of what I had done in reference to contacting Saint Anthony’s Catholic Church as well as having wrote of in my first two books published in 2014 and 2015 before the last book discussed in this writing in 2020, I had been visited and had gone to several different religious churches and temples when in the #Tacoma area of Washington state. I had already gone to #TempleBethHatfiloh in #Olympia Washington and had wonderful experiences with the #Rabbi and Mrs. Catherine Caramel along with the congregation of in 2015 before what I realize now could have been hacking and other online issues for the emails back and forth between Mrs. Caramel and I; but in 2018 I was visited by sisters of the #JehoviahWitnesses from the #Holly location and elders of the #AngelMoroni’s #ChurchofJesusChristofLatterDaySaints founded by #ReverendJosephSmith who invited me to their churches while also attending #TempleBethEl and going to classes with #RabbiKadden and #CantorFine, all which were lovely.
Also my son James had met some people who are a part of the #SeventhDayAdventists after going to an eclectic church in Tacoma with our neighbors Ms. Loretta and her son Elijah which I encouraged my son James to learn from to make his own choice, in which spiritual path he felt would be best for him. He also attended some of the services at Temple Beth Hatfiloh after several meetings with Mrs. Caramel and after I had given her a copy of the first two books as well, of which her husband is a part of The United States of America’s Army branch of the Armed Forces and might have verified certain aspects as well. I feel they might also have similar views in regard to the aspects of the casket, and thus the next few points which I feel are important.
I know one of the sisters had commented about destroying evil which I had agreed with, and admittedly though I feel she was not referring to my Medal of Honor Art Project back then or now but what I am writing in reference to this day. I felt I needed to think about what she was referring to as though I felt she was not upset about my Medal of Honor Art Project, I felt she was upset about something else which I needed to figure out. Though I think hypothetically that sister in particular had known of what occurred in reference to the casket in combination with the Catholic funeral rights, of which my ex-sisters-in-law arranged for my dead-ex-husband’s casket of which I believe hypothetically there would not be a subdivision of a #Christian religion sect which would be in existence without the approval from The Holy Roman Catholic Church in an organized manner. Though I do not have proof of such I do have a feeling, I might be accurate. As I do believe in respecting others’ religious, spiritual, non-religious, non-spiritual beliefs though I may not personally agree with each and every aspect of; if the #JehoviahsWitnesses and/or #AngelMoroni’s #ChurchofJesusChristofLatterDaySaints founded by #ReverendJosephSmith.
If the fact of myself being the only Executrix is needed to give permission for the Catholic Church to exhume the casket to remove the problems thereof as they might have something which is already in place for a just in case scenario, if the need for my personal approval is required and though I feel it is known but there might be certain legalities which are necessary for me to declare; I hereby give my permission for the exhuming of that casket to remove it along with those remains for the Holy Roman Catholic Church to do so with. If there are legal documents which need to be filled out by me, please do send them to me for that to occur so those soldiers of the various branches of The United States of America’s Armed Forces in the Dallas/Fort Worth National Cemetery as well as the others throughout the world can be put at rest. I feel there are others who can pick up on that sort of energy as well, and those who know comprehend I prefer to do the correct thing even if not necessarily always the more convenient aspect. That is not something which can be swept under the proverbial rug in my opinion, in many individuals’ eyes.
Please forward this to whom it is necessary and for the documents to be squared away, to get the process moving along. I appreciate your time and I hope you enjoy your day, and your week.
Respectfully and Sincerely,
Reverend Susan MeeLing
