"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!!"

I’m soo sorry cousin. There are no words that can bring you comfort. I know.. Only a mother who’s lost a child knows the pain and confusion of such a loss. I’m here for you if you ever want to talk. I love you.
Cousin I’m sorry. There are no words. I love you and I’m here.
I only had one interaction with your Forrest when we had about an hour long discussion ranging over various topics of interest to us both. I was struck by his sweetness and enjoyed our little time apart from the crowd around us to connect in a special way, unique I’m sure to Forrest himself. I grieve with you. God’s comfort to your family.
Forrest spent many a weekend with us in our home visiting our son Jake. We knew Forrest as a young man with a gentle soul, a kind nature and an intelligent sense of humor. He was truly loved by our family. It is difficult to find the words to express our sorrow and condolences for his entire family. He was a treasured friend to our son and loved like a brother by Jake and he will never be forgotten by any of us. Forrest’s memory will be a blessing and comfort to all who knew him.
Videos, pictures, and the live stream of the 7/7 services will be available at the group page below. Please share your stories of Forrest here or there.
If you plan on attending either event, it will be hot out so please come casual. The theme for the night event is Hawaiian.
Thank you to everyone that has reached out to the family in this very difficult time.
My Darling Forrest, we shall celebrate the 26 years we were fortunate to know and be loved by you! Miss you so much son. We will she each other again. Love Mama
Forrest was our son Jake’s best friend. They met at Frisco High School.
Forrest often stayed at our home for days. We loved having him. He was so polite and appreciative. I will forever hear and see him saying “Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Williams” for anything and everything we did! The two boys hung out, talking, cooking, watching movies, eating and doing activities nearby.
Forrest had a great sense of humor. He was the sweetest young man ever and we will miss him.
This world has lost a kind and gentle soul and we are so sorry for his family’s loss.
Marc and Cindi Williams
