"A bright sunrise will contradict the heavy fog that weighs you down," Rory captioned the pic, which showed a beautiful sunrise over the wooden cross that marks her resting place on their family farm in Tennessee.
Joey died on March 4 at the age of 40 after battling terminal cancer. While her death was incredibly difficult for the family, Rory found comfort by writing about his wife on their blog, This Life I Live.
"As we were gathered around her, holding hands and praying.. my precious bride breathed her last," he wrote in a moving post on March 12. "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."
