Erica worked for the Norman 911 Communications as a dispatcher. Because of this, the Norman Police Department provided escort assistance to the church. The Honor Guard was present and assisted the family and the service.
The service was held on Saturday March 12th, 2011 at 10:00AM at the First Baptist Church in Noble, OK. The church was packed. Officiating was my brother Stephen Dover and Rev. Mike Roberts read the obituary. My cousin Kristal Standridge shared memories of Erica and reflected on Erica as a mother. Kristal also read a wonderful book titled, Wherever You Are my love will find you, by: Nancy Tillman. I spoke about the qualities in Erica that I admired and read a poem. My brother did a wonderful and loving job in his message about Erica. Through the service three songs were played:
- One Day at a Time
- The Breath You Take
- Sissy's Song
If you want to read on I've included the poem I read.
