    I did not know Sally well as I only worked with her for about 3 years, but I’ve enjoyed learning about all her talents and gifts from those who did know her well. I think about her frequently as I enjoy some of her cross stitch pieces. I’m just amazed by her wonderful talent and the number of pieces that she completed.

    Sorry to hear the news. Sally was a “Gravity” girl who grew up only 3 houses up on our street. Sally attended school in Gravity until school district reorganization went into effect in 1959-60 with Gravity, Conway, Blockton, & Bedford forming the new Bedford Community School District. Our lives in Gravity were rich beyond compare. Sally and my younger sister, Jeanne, were in the same grade in school. Both had the incredible Mrs. John for kindergarten and first grade as did all of us in Gravity at the time. Sally’s older sister, Susan, was closer in age to me. Her dad ran a gas station in Gravity as well as being our fuel oil supplier. Her mom had many talents! They also hosted an AFS student when Sally was still at Bedford HS, or so I remember as I was away at college at the time. Best wishes to her family!

    Sally was a great co-worker when I was at Sanmina. Balie was her love! We shared notes on Balie and my grand dog Oscar, a dachshund. She loved her family.

    I will miss Sally a great deal. I knew she loved baseball and when I walked by her desk we would talk about baseball and a light would just light up in her face. I worked with Sally for many years and she helped me many times. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.

"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!!"
