    The friends and families of South Bend’s east side are sad to hear about the death of Phillip Kendall. He was one of many role models that inspired us with his achievements. I send condolences from the Boldens of Howard street.

    I am sorry to hear of Phillip’s passing. I have wonderful memories of his friendship back in the 60’s working with him at A&W, my first job. It was so long ago, I think some of his siblings worked there as well, a wonderful family to know. Rest in peace dear Phillip. May his memory be eternal.

    I’m so sorry to read of Phil’s passing. I remember his quiet smile and strength on the football field and in the classroom at Adams HS. I know that he is missed.

    So sad to learn of Phillips passing. Went to school with him from Kindergarten thru high school. Always a great guy and smart and kind. Never heard him utter an unkind word. Feel honored to have known him.

    Few pieces of news about my high school classmates have saddened me as much as learning of Phil’s death. I remember him as the most unfailingly nice, sweet and polite guy in the Adams home room we shared for four years. My deepest condolences to the Kendall family.

    Wow! He will be missed by many. I’m glad I had the opportunity to know philip. Went to John Adam’s high together (71). I remember him most from the Eagles football team. A good man from the start. RIP my brother. You are home now.

    What a great guy! I knew Phillip from John Adams High School. He was a football player. He was friends to everyone and always had a smile on his face. So very sorry to hear of his passing.

    My condolences to the Kendall family. I remember Phil as a really decent person with a good heart. It’s important for his children to know that he made a very positive and lasting impression on his high school classmates, even on those who haven’t seen him since high school graduation.

    Phillip was my first boyfriend in first grade. He was black and I am white but neither of us were aware of color. He bought me a brush, comb and mirror set for Christmas that year. I remember that like it was yesterday. I went to school with Phil from kindergarten through high school where I just lost touch with him after graduation, though I knew he went into the Air Force. He was a fabulous guy and Heaven is blessed to have him. RIP sweet Phillip.

    Dear Kendall Family,

    So shocked and saddened to hear of Phil’s passing. He was truly a wonderful person. We had several classes together in high school. He always had a ready smile and never heard him utter an unkind word. You will be missed by many. May God pour out his healing balm over your family at this time as they grieve a remarkable man.

"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!!"
