— 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.
