“My wife’s greatest dream came true today. She is in Heaven.” That’s the message from Rory Feek shared today in his blog, ‘This Life I Live‘ as his wife Joey passed away after a 2 year battle with cancer.
“The cancer is gone, the pain has ceased and all her tears are dry,” he writes. “Joey is in the arms of her beloved brother Justin and using her pretty voice to sing for her savior.”
Joey had been in what Rory had described as a deep sleep the last several days saying it was one they didn’t feel she would come out of. “At 2:30 this afternoon, as we were gathered around her, holding hands and praying.. my precious bride breathed her last. And a moment later took her first breath on the other side.”
As for his plans, he’s heading back to Tennessee with his kids saying it’s where Joey will be. “After four-and-a-half months in Indiana, we will soon be back home in Tennessee. Me, and our little one, with our older daughters. It’s hard for me to imagine being there without Joey, but at the same time…it is where she wants us to be. It’s where she will be.”
