    My deepest condolences to the family, Connie was absolutely a caring person, nothing fake about her, she loved her girls and grandkids unconditionally. We would talk about life and natural health and we also laughed. Just a beautiful sole. She will be truly missed. Look up to the sky she is there smiling.

    It seems like yesterday when we were young teenagers. Cynthia, Anthony, you and I would sit on the curve in front your house until the street light come on and we all would talk about our future. Well after we hear about the gossip at school from you. Connie, you would always have that laugh that no one could interpret. We all grew up and left with families of our own. Those are some of the great childhood memories I cherish today. We were a closed group on Gulf Field Dr. We all have left the neighborhood but when I go to my mother house. I always look at the light pole in front of your mother house where we all hung out until Mrs. Cook call for Cynthia. Those days will never be forgotten and that laugh which gave the silent street life. While you are flying high continue share the laugh and smile. You will be missed deeply. I know your wings will take you to a place of joy.

    Even through, we buried our mother in August of this year, we still don’t know the pain, loss, and hurt your family feels. There’s not words we can express that can change your loss. Only the words of God and the prays in your behalf will heal as times pass. We along love her spirit and laughter she had. We were always greeted with those things when we saw her. Our hearts are still in disbelief that she has took her rest in Jesus. Rest in peace my sister and will see you on that great getting morning. Love always.

"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!!"
