Last month, we reported on country music star Joey Feek, who recently revealed that she is dying of cancer. Unfortunately, the 40 year-old’s condition has quickly deteriorated since then, and her husband and musical partner Rory Feek recently reported that she can no longer walk.
Despite her grim prognosis, however, Joey is maintaining a positive attitude and is determined to spend her final days in a joyful environment. According to American Overlook, Joey spent her final day walking doing something truly touching with her husband.
Rory recounted what she did in a recent blog entry:
“A few days ago, on the last day Joey walked, I took her in my arms in the living room and once more put her hand in mine and we danced. She steadied with her cane and I softly moved her across the room singing George Strait’s ‘You Look So Good In Love’ in her ear. In the middle of the song though, as I was being careful not to step on her toes – she stopped and looked up at me and said, ‘How about if I lead?’
And I followed her lead as we slowly two-stepped on her mama’s living room floor.
Like dancing, she wants to do this right, or not do it at all… to share the good, the bad, and the beautiful.
And so we will.”
Please keep Joey and her family in your prayers during this difficult time.
