His Smile
Though his smile is gone forever,
And his hand we cannot touch,
We still have so many memories,
Of the husband, son and brother,
We all loved so much.
His memory is our keepsake,
With which we’ll never part.
God has him in his keeping,
We have him in our heart.

    I’m so sorry Greg, you always filled me with great amusement over Madonna and Drag Race moments.

    The bright smile of the kindest person I ever met, and the delicacy of a soft and peaceful friend and cousin we will always keep in our heart.

    I don’t even know where to begin. Greg and I were on internship together and he saved me. I guess I like to think we saved each other sometimes, but I’m not sure that’s true. It was such a rough year for both of us and we bonded over that. The only thing that got me through the year was knowing I got to come to work and see Greg every day. He made me laugh like nobody has ever made me laugh. When I was having a bad day it just took a couple words from Greg to cheer me up. I have so many stories that I would love to share with his partner or his family that I don’t think are super appropriate to post on here, but they are great memories I have of him. We didn’t keep in close touch after internship, but we talked at least a couple times a year. I can’t imagine a world without him in it. He was light in the darkness. He was joy on the status day. He was just such a beautiful bright shining light in my life. I am so sorry for everybody’s loss. The world will not be the same without Greg in it. I miss my friends so much.

    Greg, it’s taken me a minute to find the words to say. We’ve kept up with each other since our senior year of high school and our friendship no matter how long or how far, is something I have always treasured. My only regret is not being able to see you like we kept trying to plan. You were always so sweet, so smart and someone I could come to. I will miss our random texts and messages to each other. Until we meet again my sweet friend. Love you tons. To your family, praying for you and sending you bigs hugs at this difficult time.

"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!!"
