    Brad was like family to us. We spent quite a long time gaming together. We watched as not only his family grew, but him as a person. He was so proud. Going to deeply miss him.

      Brad lived at my cottage at Boles Children’s Home. He was kind and respectful to us and other young people in our home. I was always happy to see him when he could come to the Homecoming. He was so extremely proud of his family and would bring them to Boles Home for the day. I am so proud of the man he became. I was blessed to have had him as part of my life. My heart aches for the family and pray the wonderful memories will bring comfort during this time of grief.

    Bradley was a coworker and an outstanding senior officer. His dedication to his work was unmatched. His desire for excellence will not be forgotten. He displayed grace in the middle of the battle for his life. It is still hard to believe that he is no more with us. You will be missed. May God grant your family the strength to bear this loss.

    Bradley was my colleague, but more importantly, he was my friend, and I miss him. I will always cherish the talks we had regarding our children and the love he had for his family. I will remember and appreciate how thoughtful and caring he was toward his coworkers. He loved his work, and it showed will; he can never be replaced. May his family find comfort in knowing how much he loved them. Rest, my dear friend.

"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!!"
