Joey Feek’s story hits a bit too close to home so I have to admit I have actively avoided news stories about it. However, I see she passed away. Although I don’t know her or her music, I can’t help but feel tears tonight for her husband and her family.
Even when you’re at peace with the decision, watching the one you love most move from this world to the next is almost indescribable. I won’t speak for Rory Feek, but for myself, I found it a combination of immense gratitude that the long suffering was over and soul-crushing grief with the realization you have been left behind and alone. It was a confusing and painful place to be.
RIP Joey. I hope you are singing with angels and resting in peace tonight.
