    Dotty and I decided early on that we were truly sisters-of-the-heart, and I already miss her terribly. Heaven is now that much more precious to me, and my heart is assured that once again we will be together! We shared such funny adventures together as we’ll as times of great sorrow, but we were always there for one another! Love with all my heart, Sandra (and Buzz as well.)

    Today is your Celebration of Life and I truly wish you were still here with me. I really do not know how to go on without you. We have gone through good and bad times but our love for each other has never changed. You were always there to listen to my victories and problems. Hoping you are at peace with John, Mac and Nana. You will forever be in my heart.

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!!
