Playing Rory Feek Heartbreakingly Reveals Burial Plans for Joey Have Begun

Rory Feek is preparing to lay his late wife Joey to rest.

The 40-year-old singer of country duo, Joey + Rory, died on Friday after a battle with cervical and colorectal cancer, after which Rory took the couple's 2-year-old daughter, Indiana, back to their home in Tennessee, where he shared a photo on Sunday, with the message, "Making plans that I hoped we would never have to make."

It's been a difficult time for the family, with Rory having shared frequent updates during his wife's final months of life to his blog. For now, at least, Rory and Indiana are spending time with loved ones back home, as he revealed in a photo of his daughter with her friends, writing, "Reunited. Indy's happy to see her best friend Scout (and Scouty's little brother Ash)."

In a post from last November, Rory revealed Joey's wishes to be buried at the family farm, using wood from the property.

"A rough-cut wooden box with a cross on it was placed beneath the bay of the bus and brought up here because that's what Joey wants," he wrote at the time. "'Thomas to make my box… simple, from wood at the farm', she said. 'And find a good spot in the family cemetery in the field behind our house, where we put your mama's ashes last year… with room enough beside my headstone for you to join me someday… in God's time.'"

"Whatever she wants… that's what I want," Rory added, noting that he would honor Joey's wishes.

Meanwhile, the country music community had an outpouring of love for Joey, Rory, and Indy over the weekend, as it mourned the loss of one of its own. Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, and more took to social media to pay their respects.

"Heartbroken by the passing of the beautiful Joey Feek and completely inspired by the way she lived every minute. Full of love and life," tweeted Kimberly Perry of The Band Perry. "Rest in peace now. Sing with the angels now."
