We’ve all been touched by the love between Joey and Rory Feek. We watched Joey pass from cancer, and while we were heartbroken, we could not help but want to be better people because of her.
On the couple’s anniversary, Rory posted to his blog that he spent the day visiting Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee, where he and Joey met and held their wedding reception.
“I have had lots of time these last few months to think about what anniversary gift I wanted to give to my wife this year — what act of service I could do, that would matter to her — if she were here,” Rory wrote to his blog. “So with the help of some friends, I am going to try to give her a gift that is pretty much impossible … To live on, even after she’s gone.”
The gift is the above documentary, out September 20th for one day.
“Most people know Joey and I for the five months we spent in Indiana — the beautiful, terrible days and weeks last fall and winter that we intimately shared through my blog posts. They got to see Joey die. To see her face death bravely and pass to the other side with honor,” Rory Feek writes. “But I’d like for people to have the chance to see my wife live. To see the incredible woman that she was before the doctors said there was nothing more they could do … so they can better understand the amazing impact she’s had on me and everyone around her after she learned that the end was coming.”
