"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!!"

Ron and I will forever miss David. He and Beverly have been our very best friends for many years now. We have had so much fun with them-going on trips, out to dinner, movies in the movie room….and for just David and Ron it was lots of motorcycle trips.
We will miss him,
Ron & Pat Justice
A great friend and classmate!
Steve & I will miss David. We have been close friends of Beverly and David for over 20 years
…sharing dinners, mototcycle rides, Baylor/TCU football games, and even going to our favorite event, The Kentucky Derby.
Prayers for Beverly and all his family.
Steve & Sandra Bell
David and Beverly were great next door neighbors, always ready for a good time! The neighborhood was not the same after they moved. We will always remember you, David.
Thank you Pat. We loved our times together with you. He will be missed❤️
He was a great friend. He will be missed by many❤️
David had a unique sense of humor. I enjoyed bantering with him. He will be missed. Beverly, you were a patient and caring partner for David.
So many great memories with David & Beverly. We have been friends for 37 years. David love Beech Creek & going fishing with Richy. It’s too hard to explain how we feel about his passing. Will be missed and will be loved forever. Rest In Peace.
He was a great brother and friend. I will miss razzing him.
We have many fond memories with you and Steve❤️
I have only known you and Beverly for 5 years. As a neighbor, I enjoyed the times sitting on the Patio, talking Sports, drinking Wine, Cajun Cooking and your Bar-b-Que. I miss driving by the Circle at your home and not seeing you sitting there. It’s a bigger void than I imagined. Beverly, we are here for you and will be here to help as needed. David, I’m sure you have already started causing trouble with Saint Peter. I can see that gleem in your eye.
Rick and I are so sorry for your loss. We were so moved by your love, care and devotion to David. A beautiful marriage is one blessed by the Lord. Praying God’s peace and comfort to surround you and your family.
Beverly, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband❤️ .
Beverly,I’m so sorry for your loss. David was a great guy and you two were so good together. Please know that my heart goes out to you at this difficult time. ❤️
Beverly, I never met David but saw several pictures of him over the years. You made such a great looking couple. I remember you borrowing my “70” sign for David’s birthday. WOW! That was 8 yrs ago! David must have been a great guy!
With Love and Prayers,
