Rory Feek updated fans on Easter about how his and Joey Feek‘s daughter has been doing since the untimely death of her mother earlier this month.

Rory Feek Update

Feek took to his blog – This Life I Live – on Easter Sunday, writing about how his 2-year-old daughter Indiana seems unaware of her mother’s passing. “Indy has not asked for her mama. Not one single time since Joey’s been gone,” Feek wrote. “It’s almost as if she hasn’t noticed that she’s not here. And that is so sad… and oh, so wonderful – all at the same time.”

In his post, Feek went on to explain that his late wife had, in a way, sought to foster a stronger relationship between Indiana and Rory before she lost her battle with cancer.

“There’s a Bible verse that I have been thinking a lot about lately… John 3:30. It says, ‘He must become greater; I must become less,'” Feek wrote. “When we first got to Indiana in late October, Joey was Indy’s whole world. Everyone else was… well, just everyone else. Including me. She loved her mama so much and all she wanted was to be with her, beside her or in-sight of her. But in early November, when Joey started to realize that there was a good chance that she might not beat her battle with cancer, she made a decision… ‘he must become greater and I must become less.'”

“And she started going against everything in her being that told her ‘time was short’ so hold her baby even tighter… and longer… and more… and instead – she handed the baby to me, and sat alone in a bed and watched and listened as my relationship with Indy grew…and hers lessoned,” Feek added.

Joey Feek and Rory Feek, in addition to being husband and wife, were country duo Joey + Rory. When Joey was diagnosed with cancer, Rory began documenting their journey on his blog. Sadly, Joey lost her battle with cervical cancer on March 4 at age 40.
