    Tom & I considered it an honor to have known you, Woody. You were my original “taste tester” of my cupcake baking for the Sunday morning golfers. You always made me smile with your encouragement. Rest In Peace, friend. I know we’ll all be together again.

    So sorry to hear about Woody. I was a big fan, watching Woody play basketball and baseball at Durfee as well as baseball with the American Legion. Woody was a high pick in the 1965 MLB draft, shortly after Johnny Bench, and way ahead of Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan. I remember Woody coming by Durfee after signing with the Pirates, driving a 1966 Mercury Cyclone convertible. He brought a lot of pride to the school and it’s students.

    My condolences to Woody’s family. We were classmates at Durfee, and we laughed a lot. He was a great friend. He will be missed.

    I admire and admonished Woody as an athlete and a friend at Durfee and a long time before at Armory Basketball.
    He was a great team leader as President of our senior class, at basketball and baseball, and was a great friend. He will be long remembered and sadly missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

    Julie and I are both very sad to have lost Woody from this world. He was not only a gifted athlete, but a good friend. It was a joy and an honor to have been his friend and teammate for three years of Durfee basketball. Our sincerest condolences to his family.

    Woody, rest in peace, my old friend. I still miss all our great golf matches at Wayne Hills in WNY. You and Connie were such gracious hosts in Webster NY and in Allen TX. You treated everyone you met with respect and dignity. We also enjoyed time together in Tampa FL. All your friends at Xerox and all your friends at Wayne Hills are deeply saddened by your passing. My deepest condolences to Connie and to Breanne. My prayers continue for your family from Fall River and for your wife and daughter. You were a tremendous athlete, a fantastic provider, enjoyed a splendid career, and you were always there in a pinch for friends as well as strangers. I miss you very much. I shall never forget all the coaching and lessons you taught. Woody, you will live in my heart forever. I know we will all be together again one day.

    Sad to see you have left us and though I haven’t seen you for many years, we spent great times at XRX and on the course. May you RIP.

"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."

"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!!"
