    I am so very sorry for the loss of this special person who was loved by so many. So many of my teenage years were with Traci and her fun loving mom. She will be missed but never forgotten. God Bless you all during this time.

    My prayers are with you all at this time. Weeping may endure for a night but Joy comes in the morning. Psalms 30:5 I know your hearts are broken but please take solace in the fact that God makes no mistakes. He will give you strength to endure. I love you Traci, Charles, Hadley, Lyric, Malik, and Zaria. I’m always here and you guys are always in my prayers.

    I was saddened to hear of Sheri’s passing. She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile and personality. She shined as Anna in ‘The King and I’ and was a sweet high school friend. She will always be one of our PEDRO GIRLS. May she rest in peace and please know my heart aches for your loss.

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!!
