    This hurts my heart so much. I saw Nathan a few months ago and it was great. I’m gonna focus on that night.

    Nathan. You karaoked “I believe in a thing called love”. You were so good at it. You made it fun and hilarious and everyone loved it. I can see it now. You did it at a karaoke room in New York and again at the Snooze Christmas party. You LOVED peanut butter cereal and ate it every day. You loved eating at new places and traveling to new places, too. You were happy with what life gave you and that is inspirational and it’s how I’ll remember you. You were the most beautiful human. I’m so sorry you’re gone. It’s not fair at all.

    Nathan was a real crowd favorite. His sense of humor made everyone laugh. He was great in the spotlight and was able to connect to anyone through his sincerity and humor.

    He also was a dear friend I could confide in. He always spoke freely and honestly to me. I knew that I always had a place to stay if I was down and out and he the same. Friends like that are hard to find.

    His love for animals was so admirable. I have never met someone who had such an ability to befriend any and all animals. It says a lot about Nathan’s character and who he was.

    Nathan had great taste in film and music. I would often pick his brain about what movies or band to check out. He had a true love for the arts and was an encyclopedia of knowledge, even naming obscure actors that made cameos in films. We played music together countless times, he was one of the best drummers I’ve ever played with.

    I wanted to leave a story here about Nathan I think he’d love told. He went to a show for a band from Omaha. During the show, Nathan would yell out to the band things such as his favorite pizza place in Omaha and the lead singer would acknowledge it and comment on the places. Nathan started asking if he could come up on stage and play drums and they eventually let him come up and play percussion for a song at the show.

    I love Nathan deeply and this definitely feels like a hole in my soul. I will forever cherish the great memories and will always wish for just a little more time with him.

    Nathan’s an outstanding drummer as well as a lovable person and I have recordings that show that. I miss him so.

"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!!"
