Since being diagnosed with cervical cancer in May 2014, Joey Feekhas been supported by not only her husband Rory, but also the country industry as a whole. As her husband of nearly 14 years shared the sad news on March 4 that “my precious bride breathed her last,” the condolences quickly came pouring in.
Throughout Joey’s two year cancer battle and more recently the four and a half months since moving to Indiana and entering hospice, Rory let family, friends and fans in on their journey. In his last post titled “A Dream Come True,” he continued: “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 that you want them to stay with you. And so, it makes the hard job of saying goodbye just a little easier .”
As Rory and their 2-year-old daughter Indiana travel back to Tennessee along with his two older daughters from a previous relationship to continue their life, there are plenty of people ready to embrace them with open arms and support. Read all the heartwarming messages below from Carrie Underwood to Eva Longoria.

Rest in peace Joey. #heavyheart I only had the pleasure of meeting them both a few times at award shows and I wish I got to know them better. Their love is greater than most will ever know. Praying for their family and loved ones. Let us not forget how precious life is. Tell someone you love them right now!
