Joey and Rory Feek’s latest update showed Joey clasping the hand of her oldest daughter Heidi in one of her last days on Earth.
“Our oldest daughter Heidi by her mama’s side last night. Holding on and letting go,” the caption read.
Rory also recently released a touching tribute to his wife, saying in a short blog post that in 40 years Joey “has accomplished many great things” and “lived a very full life.”
“But even more than that, she has loved those around her greatly and been loved greatly in return. I can honestly say that Joey’s isn’t just a life well-lived, it’s a life well-loved,” he wrote.
“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. 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.'”
The moving tribute video shoes Joey throughout her life, and Rory admitted that he cried while putting it together.
