Playing Rory Feek's Daughter Indiana 'Won’t Leave' His Side Following His Wife Joey's Death

Rory Feek is slowly adjusting to life without his late wife, Joey, who died on March 4 at the age of 40 after a lengthy battle with cervical and colorectal cancer, as is their daughter, Indiana.

In fact, the 2-year-old toddler has become his adorable little shadow, as shown in the country bluegrass singer's latest Instagram post. "…somebody won't leave her papa's side," the 49-year-old country singer wrote of his daughter, who was clad in a cheerful yellow shirt and pigtails.

...somebody won't leave her papa's side.

Joey, who was one half of the country duo Joey+Rory, was buried on the Feek's family farm on March 10, days after passing away while surrounded by loved ones and family. Rory described his wife's final breaths on his blog, This Life I Live. "As we were gathered around her, holding hands and praying.. my precious bride breathed her last," he wrote. "And a moment later took her first breath on the other side… When a person has been through as much pain and struggle as Joey's been through, you just want it to be over. You want them to not have to hurt anymore, more than you want them to stay with you."
