"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!!"

John, was a great friend of mine We spent many years together playing golf and just hanging out. I will miss my buddy. We talked all the the time. May he RIP I will not forget you. We will still talk about you specially on the golf course. We shared many laughs together my dear old friend .❤ love to all. So sorry you left us way to early.
I may not have seen John in a long time but still have many fond memories. I was with Lois when they met. I met his son Johnny the day he was born. I live in Strongsville, OH and think about him every time I pass his condo before the family moved to Texas. My heart breaks for his family. I love all of you and can’t express how sorry I am for your loss.
I have many great memories of John as a friend/coworker. He was a pleasure even when he thought the glass was half empty and I would argue it was half full. He was always respectful and helpful. I know he will be missed. My prayers go out to Lois and the family. I have made a donation today toward the research for SARC.
John was my cousin. We reconnected when I visited Dallas on business about 15 years ago. I will miss our frequent phone conversations. John was one of the good guys. He had contacted me two days before he passed away. I was shocked to hear the news. RIP cuz, I will see you again some day.
Dear Lois and children, you are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your beloved husband and father. While I never met John, I knew that he had to be an extra-special guy for Lois to commit her life to him in marriage. Sending love and prayers across the miles, Lois. Your friend of too many years to count, Elaine (Horun) Gaughan
Lois, I was so shocked and saddened to read about John’s passing. I enjoyed knowing him working for him at the Apparel Mart. He was a Great Man and he loved You and your children with all of his heart. May He RIP
It was a shock to hear about John’s passing. We may not have seen each other for a long time but we still remember the 8 years we spent together as neighbors.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your children. May he Rest In Peace.
Fred and Jessie and family
