Those who have been following the story of country stars Joey and Rory Feek have known for a while now that Joey ha been sick with terminal cancer. Tonight, Rory took to his blog to share that Joey has said her goodbyes. What specifically did he say?
Rory Feek- Joey Has Said Her Goodbyes
“Joey gathered her family together around her and she said goodbye to each of them,” Rory shared. “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 home soon. That her time here was done and she was going to sleep soon.”
He had more to add, stating that, “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.”
“My wife has been asleep for days now and her body is shutting down quickly,” he added. “The hospice nurse came again this morning and said that Joey will most likely only be with us for a few more days… at the most.”
He wrapped with saying that, “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.”
This is so tragically sad and we give Rory so much credit for being brave and open enough to share this. It truly brought tears to our eyes. We will keep you posted with more updates as they arise.
