On a perfect blue sky Tennessee day, Joey Feek was laid to rest surrounded by family and close friends at her private funeral service.  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.
