Latest Update on Joey + Rory

Latest Update on Joey + Rory

March 1, 2016

In his latest blog entry on, Rory Feek shares that his wife Joey said her final goodbyes to her family a few days ago and has been asleep ever since.

"My wife has been asleep for days now," Feek wrote on Monday, Feb. 29, "and her body is shutting down quickly.  The hospice nurse came again this morning and said Joey will most-likely only be with us for a few more days… at the most."

Just a few days prior, Joey was blessed with the time and opportunity to say goodbye to her loved ones.  

"Joey gathered her family together around her and she said goodbye to each of them… to her mother and father and her three sisters.  There were lots of tears as she explained to each one how much she loved them and that she was going to be going home soon.  That her time here was done and she was going to go to sleep soon.  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."

As painful as this is for the Feek family and those closest to them, Rory remains steadfast in his faith.

"...thank you to all who have followed my wife’s beautiful journey.  Who are still following.  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."
