One Last Kiss: Joey + Rory Prepare For The End

Rory Feek posted a heartbreaking update about his wife Joey’s battle with terminal cancer on today, explaining to fans that the country singer, who entered hospice care in November, has said her goodbyes to family and friends and likely has only a few days left to live.

It is difficult for me to write this, partly because it seems like everything I write these days ends up as some tragic news story about my wife and her ‘last days’ and the ‘shocking’ new development that has just been shared, Rory writes.  I want to apologize for any sensational headlines that this or any post has created.  That has not been my intention.  These are just stories… small vignettes from our lives, just like the ones that you and everyone out there are living every day”.

Rory has kept friends, family, and fans up to date of his wife’s status since the beginning of her cancer battle last year, and despite all the heartache they have been through, he’s “thankful” that their story has reached so many.

Joey has done all she set out to do… even right to the very end, and by sheer will-power (and God’s grace), she was still here to to see our baby’s 2nd birthday.  Over the last number of weeks her pain had gotten worse and her health had continued to decline rapidly.  And not long after Indy’s birthday my wife decided that ‘enough is enough’.  She was ready to stop fighting and she told me so.  She said the flowers would soon be blooming back in Tennessee.  It’s time to go home”.

Rory went on to thank their fans for following his wife’s fight. “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,” he wrote. “When Joey takes her last breath here… she will take her first breath there. In Heaven.”

Please continue to keep Joey + Rory in your thoughts and prayers!
