    I never followed the "Joey and Rory" act and only recently learned who she is. It is a very sad story, she is near death with cancer and leaving a husband and young children behind.

    Amazing Grace.

    Her first pro demo, recorded at Bill Gaither's studio, she did a couple of my songs, and I played lead guitar. She was a really sweet girl.

    The story is very sad. They posted that she has only "days" left.
    As always, cancer sucks.

    apparently she is now unconscious...for good...which means real soon. I went through this with my Dad and it sucks.

    I've only become aware of her and her husband since she'd become sick. So heartbreaking.

    Rory posts on a blog about their lives together.

    Rory Feek - This Life I Live

    Joey was recently blessed with getting to celebrate their daughter, Indiana's, second birthday. Sadly, Indiana has Down's Syndrome. As someone said earlier, Joey is now mostly asleep these days and the pallative care Hospice nurses have said that she probably won't be here but for just a few more days, if that.

    I pray that God gives Rory and their families peace through this ordeal.

    Oh man, I watch their show often. I didn't realize this was going on. That's truly a sad story. My prayers for the family.

    First I've heard of her and she's just about gone. A heck of a sad loss. What a voice.

    I need to pay more attention.

    She died today, but considering the circumstances it seemed for the best. She put up a good fight.
