NORMAN — Three-year-old Amber Finley loved the moon and the stars more than anything.
Her father, Cory Finley, 24, loved showing her the moon and stars, because above all else he loved Amber, a family member said Friday.
Amber and Cory Finley died in a house fire Wednesday in Norman.
Cory Finley's aunt, DeAnne Patman, of Odessa, Texas, said services for the two will be 10 a.m. Monday at Havenbrook Funeral Home in Norman.
A viewing for Amber will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday.
Cory Finley will be cremated, and his ashes buried in the casket with Amber, Patman said.
The family is struggling to deal with the loss, she said.
“Cory loved computers, and he loved to play the guitar. But what he loved most was Amber,” she said.
Amber, who turned 3 in December, loved to shop and watch Nickelodeon on television, Patman said, “but what she loved the most was the moon and the stars.”
She also loved the family dog, Buster, a Chihuahua, who also died in the fire.
“He was found beside her,” Patman said.
Firefighters found the body of Cory Finley in the garage under heavy fire debris.
Amber was discovered in the living room next to Buster.
She was taken to Norman Regional Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
When firefighters arrived, they discovered a fire in the garage that had spread to the attic, with heavy smoke throughout the house at 2605 Richardson Drive, Norman Deputy Fire Chief Jim Bailey said.
Bailey said investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire, which erupted about 3:30 a.m.
Investigators think the fire was accidental, based on evidence they have looked at so far, Bailey said.
Cory Finley's parents, Richard and Brenda Finley, own the house but were out of town when the fire occurred, neighbors said.
