This is just too sweet! Rory Feek made a touching confession on his Instagram just two weeks after his wife, Joey Feek, passed away — that their daughter, Indiana, won’t leave his side. See the adorable picture right here!
Rory Feek and his little 2-year-old daughter Indiana said goodbye to their beloved wife and mother, Joey Feek, on March 4, but their heartbreaking loss has brought them even closer. In a new Instagram post, Rory, 49, revealed that Indiana hasn’t left his side since Joey’s passing. Talk about tugging at the heartstrings, Rory!
Rory snapped a shot of Indiana as she patiently sits at her dad’s feet with pigtails in her hair. As if the photo isn’t cute enough, he captioned the touching photo, “…somebody won’t leave her papa’s side.” The last two weeks haven’t been easy for Rory and Indiana, as they sadly laid Joey to rest on March 8 and bravely stood up in front of hundreds at a public memorial service on March 13. But clearly there has been one light in all of the darkness: The father-daughter bond that Rory and Indiana share.
Despite losing Joey to stage IV cervical cancer after a long battle with the disease, Rory has always maintained a hopeful attitude and kept fans informed about her condition. Indiana has likely played a major role in Rory’s strength, as she shared some sweet moments with her mom before Joey passed and her adorable smile is contagious.
At the same time, Rory emphasized how positive Joey remained herself throughout her entire fight, which was another reason he was able to stay so strong. In fact, even though Joey lost her life at the young age of 40, she told her husband that she was content with the fulfilled life she had lived. Rory shared her touching last words in a blog post on Feb. 29:
“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.'”
As Rory continues life on the Tennessee farm that meant so much to Joey, hopefully coping with her loss will start to get easier. And with Indiana always sweetly at Rory’s side, we would hope that each day will be a little bit brighter for the two of them!
