    The news of Wayne’s death brings sadness. As a classmate from high school, a remembrance of Wayne was the way he could light up a room when he walked in. My condolences to family and close friends.

  16. Bob Norcross says:

    We lost a really GOOD one when we lost “Weenie”. He was funny, serious, loveable and cranky all rolled into one but above all he was a great friend man. Many great times on the golf course and at Sysco. RIP my friend … you will not be forgotten.

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!!
