It was so sad and heartbreaking to lose Joey Feek a few days ago. What an inspiration she was! She was only 40-years-old and beautiful inside and out. Now she knows what it's like to be in glory with Jesus! 

My friend in the biz Neal Dionne wrote, "she was a lovely person. I enjoyed our many interviews. Knowing this was coming hasn't made it any easier. Love you Joey. You handled a miserable circumstance with strength and grace."

Her husband Rory wrote, "my bride has accomplished many great things. She's lived a very full life. But even more than that, she has loved those around her greatly and been loved greatly in return. I can honestly say that Joey's isn't just a life well-lived, it's a life well-loved. After four-and-a-half months in Indiana, we will soon be back home in Tennessee. Me, and our little one, with our older daughters. It’s hard for me to imagine being there without Joey, but at the same time… it is where she wants us to be. It’s where she will be… She’s gonna be in the mint growing beside our back deck, the sweet-corn frozen in our freezer and a million other places that her hand and heart has touched around our little farmhouse and community. Joey will still be with us. Everywhere. So if it’s okay, I’m gonna close, wipe my tears and pack our bags to hit the road headed south."

@opry Our hearts go out to the family of Joey Feek. She was a beautiful person inside and out and will truly be missed.
