    Oh Sandy, I just heard that Cip passed, am so sorry for your loss and to miss paying him tribute by attending his funeral. Back in the day, he was a mentor to me community wise when I first got involved in the Hispanic community and he loved that we shared the same birthday … I will toast his beautiful spirit then. RIP to a true servant leader!

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!!
