8 Thoughts on Linda Carol Haire-Warner

    Shannon & Larry,

    Your mom was always so kind and encouraging to me as a mother and as a fellow educator. She was cheering me on in our last conversation just a few weeks ago. I will remember Linda, always… but especially playing soccer or kickball. I remember kicking the ball around Meme’s yard with Jack, West & Lilibeth one of the last times we were there. As she watched the four of us, she looked at me and said, “Girl… who taught you how to kick a ball?” She taught me that day (side of your foot NOT the front!) and I am forever changed as a kickball player 😉

    I know there will be a gap in your family as you grieve her loss now and in the years to come. I am praying that your sadness will be replaced by happy and joyous memories soon. I’m also praying for Kylie, Ty, Nash and Trent who brought so much joy to your parents.

    Everybody wishes they would have had a Linda Warner. I think at some point we all got some pops from Linda, but for me it was only because I didn’t want to go to all day SAC! Linda was stern, but so very kind! She will truly be missed by all that knew her. Oh….. she was also had the best sense of humor! Love and partners for all who loves her.

    She was an awesome coach and a genuinely caring person. She noticed my leg was swollen and for me to be sure and have my mom take me to a doctor. Dr Pollock was a Urologist and literally saved my life. Turns out I had a severe kidney and bladder bacterial infection that kept me down for like 6 months. She was always watching out for us girls. Years later our paths would cross again; we both attended Ninth and Elm Street Church of Christ were we raised our children. God always puts you were you’re needed the most. Thank you God for placing this beautiful sweet soul in my path.
    Prayers for families ♥️ ♥️

"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!!"
