Priceless memories. Rory Feek shared a touching throwback video of his wife, Joey Feek, in Hawaii on Facebook and his blog on Tuesday, February 23. In the video shot last year, terminally ill Rory is seen looking happy and healthy with their baby girl, Indiana.
“It was a magical trip,” country singer Rory recalled in his blog post, explaining the trip to Oahu was for his birthday last year.
“For two weeks, we didn’t just walk down memory lane … we made incredible memories that will last a lifetime! We walked beaches, hiked craters, caught waves, climbed volcanos, road catamaran’s, drank mai-tai’s and even blew out a few candles together. It was our favorite vacation we’ve ever taken,” Rory, 49, shared. “Most of the trips that we call family vacations, are actually places where we’re playing a show and try to fit in a few days of being tourists around it. This one was different. There was no music, no plan, no rush … just us all being together as a family. I loved it.”
In the video, Joey, 40, laughs with Indiana, walks on the beach and watches the sunset, and sings “Happy Birthday” to her husband.
“What a difference a year makes,” Rory added on Facebook. “The only thing that's changed is everything. And nothing.”
Joey, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, halted all treatments in October 2015 after her chemotherapy was deemed ineffective. This past November, she entered hospice care at home in Indiana, where she’s been spending her final moments with family and friends.
