"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!!"

My thoughts and prayers are with you all, Martha, Judy, and Paul especially. I know Mike will be watching over all of you as your Mom, Dad, and Tommy are. God bless all of you.
Michael ,What a beautiful child of God you were. An inspiration to our family. God Blessed us all with your presence in our lives when he gave you such a beautiful gift for the ability to make everyone who came in contact with you feel loved and for the laughter you gave us. Thank you for your love, and laughter. I will never forget what you said after your kidney transplant You said ” you didn’t know if you were supposed to stand or sit, when you needed to pee!” (Since you received a kidney from a little girl) What a character you were. You will be missed by everyone who was a relative or friend. RIP my beautiful cousin. I love you, Barbara
To my Vanlandingham/Davis family, I am sorrow for the passing of Michael. I recall days in Mississippi when we would meet at uncle Earnest’s house nearly every Saturday and have a meal and go out and play. Later that day we would go to the drive in movie, that uncle Earnest managed. I look at the picture and see His mother. I sorry I will not be there for you, but I will be thinking and praying for you.
Martha i wont get to make it but ill be there in spirit i miss mike calling me all time love you guys very much aunt carol
I am so sorry to read this. I came across this today by accident. I knew Michael back in the 70s and he was alway chasing his dreams. We worked together on a newspaper he founded called “The Singles News” that told about all the happening in Dallas at that time. It was a fun time and he was in the middle of it. He and Rex Cauble could be spotted at James Comedy playing liers poker with 100’s several nights of the week.
Love to his wife and family and prayers for comfort.
I was curious how you all were and saw this. I m so so sorry. And I assume your mother as well? I wish we would have kept up. If you ever do want to reach out please call me. I would love to see you and your dad again. 214 471 8937. This is Peggy, Doug’s friend.
