    To the Caldwell family I send my heartfelt condolences. I would have expected a lengthy obituary and pages of comments from friends, so I cannot begin to imagine what has led us to this. Annie Laurie was my first love, a beautiful and brilliant woman, and I never stopped caring for her and hoping she would find peace and be ok. I hope that that was the case. Best wishes to the family. Peace! Hans

    My sincere condolences to all Annie-Laurie’s family and friends. I, too, am stunned to finally get this news and am also surprised more are not commenting and leaving notes. She was an important teacher of mine and for a time a great friend. We lost touch over the years and like Mr. Cooper I hope she found the peace she sought and was ok. Pax Omnis.

    I am belatedly learning of Annie-Laurie’s passing, which saddens me. We were colleagues at SMU and friends, although we lost touch over the years. She was indeed beautiful and talented as a teacher, a musician, a cook, and an artist. She was charitable and big-hearted to those in need, and took in as many stray dogs as her house would hold. She was a lively but restless person. May she now rest in peace.

    Late tonight, I started thinking of old friends, and although I haven’t seen Annie Laurie for years, she was the first person I googled tonight. The first item to pop up was her obituary. Ouch. Long dark hair, brilliant unbelievably blue eyes, and the unlikely name of Annie Laurie. She was charismatic, magnetic, almost vibrating with passion, and infinitely intelligent. As a very junior colleague, I was in awe. God bless Annie Laurie.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
