On Tuesday March 8th, beautiful Joey Feek was laid to rest in a grove of sassafras trees behind the family farmhouse outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Rory stated, "with friends and family gathered around, we said goodbye to the greatest person I have ever known". In a recent blog post, Rory shared memories of Joey's private funeral attended by family and friends and hosted on the family farm.

On a perfect blue sky Tennessee day, Joey Feek was laid to rest surrounded by family and close friends.  Here are some of the photos and sentiments that Rory shared:

“a team of mules carried Joey’s simple wooden box in an 1800’s wagon with six of Joey’s favorite ‘cowboys’ by her side”…

 “At the gravesite, Mike Glenn – our pastor in Tennessee, spoke of the better place that Joey’s in and also of the better place that the world is because Joey was in it”.

“And we spent the afternoon a few steps from Joey’s garden, hugging and loving and celebrating the beautiful life she lived”.

 “Joey’s one hope was that she could “come home” on a beautiful day… and oh, it was.   The daffodils were blooming, the grass was green and sky was bright blue”.   Joey’s wish was granted and she was given a beautiful day.
