"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."
"I was amazed how professional the team at Aria Funeral Preston Dallas Texas are. They guided me through the process and my options of their services that they offered for my mother. They are compassionate, caring, calm, good listener, efficient and did an excellent job! Thank you!"
"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."
"Wayne and Staff, thank you for taking care of the arrangements for our mom, Exter McGee and our dad, Philip McGee. You have been great to work with during such a difficult time."
"On behalf of my family, I wanted you to know how much we appreciate your handling of my husband's final arrangements. Wayne Baxter assisted & guided us through the entire process with such care & compassion. Don't know what we would have done without him! Sincerely, Colleen Elledge"
"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!!"

I loved Mitzi always. She was funny, loving, smart and sensitive all wrapped in to one. I’m grateful that Mitzi considered me a friend. I’m blessed from things I’ve learned from her and will treasure our conversations forever. No more hurting for you, my friend. Rest with peace.
Mitzi was a blessing to all who knew her. She will always be remembered for her loving heart, sharp wit, outstanding sense of humor and the raising of her eyebrow. Mitzi was a loving daughter and granddaughter, sister and Aunt. Her family meant the world to her. So thankful that she and Cortez found each other. My condolences to Diana and the King Family.
I have no words to try to describe my feeling of loss. Mitzi was a wonderfully good person. Life will not be the same.
Mitzi my sweet peacemaker with the softest and most gentle heart one could have. You always had a beautiful smile even when days were tough. You brought such happiness to my Diana. She loved you unconditionally and things will not be the same. You always were there no matter what. Taken too soon but you were here to make a difference in many people lives at work snd personally. We will keep you in our hearts and remember you always.
Mitzi Mitzi, you will be missed my friend. I’m blessed to have you in my life. Our time together and the stories will live on forever and ever. Don’t forget to drink your milk!! I will keep up the tradition!
Mitzi was an amazing woman who touched everyone she knew – a kind soul and a loving partner to my Diana. I will miss her but am holding on to many memories. Rest in peace, Mitzi – you will always be remembered and loved.
You were always a good friend Mitzi and I am grateful for that. Thank you for loving Diana. You will truly be missed. Rest In Peace dear friend ❤️
Rhonda and family, May God hold you and give you peace. Shalom!
Mitzi had the most beautiful smile that
would light up the room! Her sense of humor and laughter were contagious! One thing we shared in common was our love for dogs. Thank you for loving my sweet friend Diana! Mitzi you will be forever missed but never forgotten. Fly High with the Angels My Sweet Friend!
I worked with Duty and Taryn county imaging hour. She was a wonderful lady to know she will be missed
My Precious Mitzi- I met Mitzi 2/12/92 and pursued/stalked her until she was my friend. She lit up a room! Her gift with words was amazing. She could always capture the moment in inspiration. My funny, funny friend. Let us embrace the joy and love we all shared with My Mitzi! Holding you to the Light!!
Sabra, I am so sorry for your loss. May God bring you and your family strength and peace in this difficult time.
Mitzi had such a kind and giving spirit. She meant the world to Diana. Theirs was a true and beautiful love. She will be missed by so many.
As we move through life, we meet people along the way who teach us many lessons. As I have thought about Mitzi over the past few months, I keep thinking about the lessons that she taught me.
Be kind–Mitzi was one of the kindest people that I have ever met. Regardless of the situation, she never had a bad thing to say and always took the time to listen… really listen. Mitzi was always there to help others and would do so without judgement.
Focus on family—Mitzi had a deep and very visible love for her family. They were always first in her life. She was always so proud to share pictures and updates, beaming the entire time.
Always smile—Mitzi had the best smile…EVER! I know that many days she probably didn’t feel like smiling, but she would do so anyway (for all of us). She was a bight light and shining star to those that she touched.
Mitzi will be missed by all…hugs to the King and Cortez families.
I’ve missed you for so long now, we saw each other so infrequently but there was always the hope you would one day be well enough to fully enjoy all that life has to offer…and now you are. You and I shared so many incredible memories together. You’re the only one I’ve ever sailed the Potomac really river together for a midnight private yacht trip, complete with roses and wine. Maybe that skipper still talks about that night. I still do. I’ll always love your pure heart, your kind soul, and that gleam in your eye as we shared so much laughter and joy. I love you, Mitzi. Be free, my Friend.
Sabra, I am heartbroken for you in hearing about the loss of your sister. My sister has been battling stage IV lymphoma since September and I know that sisters are irreplaceable in your heart and memories. May you find peace in your memories and knowing she was loved. Lindsey
