Many of you, like us, have been praying for Joey and Rory and the rest of the Feek family. Earlier this week Rory posted that Joey said her final goodbyes and drifted into a deep sleep. Joey was ready to go home to the Lord after fighting the good fight. As most of our readers know, Joey passed away yesterday, March 4. To honor her Rory put together this POWERFUL video to ‘In The Time That You Gave Me’ she recorded long ago.
Rory said he went through pictures over the weekend and let them take him back to when they first met. He also came across a song they recorded a few years ago, but never made it onto an album.
The song, titled “In The Time That You Gave Me,” has an even deeper meaning now. Rory took the song and made a slideshow with some of Joey’s photos with it.
“I could barely listen or watch at first. But then, as I listened and watched more… I smiled more and I cried less,” he wrote.
People worldwide have been following the couple’s story and Joey’s battle with cancer since her cervical cancer diagnosis in June 2014.
She stopped treatment in October and was given six to nine months to live. She began hospice care and returned from Tennessee to her childhood home in Indiana.
“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,” he wrote.
Rory says that when she passes, Joey will be buried in her family plot behind the farmhouse
