Joey and Rory Feek, a husband/wife musical duo, have captured the hearts of many during the most difficult time of their lives. Joey Feek was diagnosed with terminal cancer in late 2015 and it was just announced that the songbird has passed away.
“Though our hearts are heavy we all need to do our best to remember that this is not the end. It’s only the beginning. When Joey takes her last breath here… she will take her first breath there. In Heaven,” wrote Rory Feek on his blog a few days ago.
The couple have been diligent about keeping their fans updated on what is happening and sharing their heartache and happy moments whenever they get the opportunity. Many are hailing them as inspiring.
Heidi Feek, Rory’s daughter, posted the bittersweet video below last night. In it, we see Rory Feek dancing with a giggling 2-year-old Indiana Feek. Indiana is too young to know she will have to grow up without her beloved mother, Joey. Rory does his best to keep his daughter joyful, which is an inspiration in itself.
Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers continue to be with this extraordinary family.
