    I’m really sorry for your loss.. She was an amazing teacher. She taught me a lot about life and because of her I’m going to graduate this year. I’d really appreciate if I can go to the funeral to pay my respects. She will be greatly missed..

    I’m sad to hear the passing of Ms. Hanna. She was my algebra teacher my jr year in high school & was an amazing teacher, even though I disliked the homework. (What kid likes math homework?) She was different from other teachers so most kids didn’t care for her but personally I saw more than just a math teacher. I’ll never forget her quirky random facts she’d tell the class or how she beamed when she announced to us her granddaughter was born. She enjoyed doing what she did and I’m going to miss her dearly. May she rest in peace and peace be with her family.

    We will miss or sweet neighbor of 26 years. I know that you are injoying the splendor of your new home in the presence of your Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, and feeling sorry for all of us who are left here. One day we will join you there. Prayers for your family and friends as they deal with their terrible loss. The world lost a great lady. Zry2vT

    She was a good friend, a really, really good math teacher, and a person of strong convictions. She had high standards for her students and for herself, and had an uncanny way of reaching students and helping them push themselves to their goals (and hers!). She had the respect of all who knew her – for a wide variety of reasons. I miss her.

    Ms. Hanna was one of my favorite teachers and I will always appreciate the impact she had in my life. Her humor and passion for teaching made her such a special person. I deeply regret not keeping in touch with her after I graduated from Berkner.

    Ms. Hanna was one of the greatest teachers at BHS. She taught me algebra 2 and calculus, so we got to know each other well. Even now as a college student, I still refer to the notes that I took in her class. She drove her students crazy with tough assignments!! But she never gave us anything we couldn’t handle. Ms. Hanna had high expectations for her students and taught us to never doubt ourselves. She not only cared about our academic success, but she cared about us as people. I lost my mother a year ago and Ms. Hanna was beyond supportive and encouraging. I will never forget and will always miss the incomparable Ms. Hanna.

    So sorry to hear about the passing of Betsy. We grew up together in Dallas. I remember her from elementary school and thru high school. We shared lots of laughs during our younger days. I could not find anything about her passing, other than this memorial site. My dear childhood friend, Rest in Peace.

"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!!"
