Joey + Rory’s Joey Feek said she was ready to stop fighting, and she has. She has gone into a deep sleep that her family doesn’t expect her to come out of.
Rory writes in his This Life I Live blog that she’s been sleeping for days, but she drifted off on her own will.
“One of the last things Joey said before she drifted into the deep sleep she’s been in for a few days now is, ‘I have no regrets…I can honestly say, that I have done everything I wanted to do and lived the life I always wanted to live,'” he wrote.
It happened a few days after daughter Indiana’s second birthday on February 17. Rory says she gathered her family together and said goodbye to each of them.
And then she asked me to bring our baby in. And so… I set our little Indy on Joey’s lap and we all cried with my wife as she told her how much her mama loved her and, “…you be a big girl for your papa… and that mama will be watching over you”. And then she pulled Indiana up and she kissed her.
One last kiss.
For his part, Rory seems to be at peace after Joey’s 2 year battle with cancer. “God only gives each of us a certain amount of time to be on this earth and every day when we wake up, we get to decide how we are going to spend those precious minutes and hours. There are no do-overs, no second-chances, no next-time-around’s to get it right. Joey knew this and she has made each and every day count.”
