Next month will mark one year since Joey Feek passed away, but that hasn’t stopped husband Rory from constantly thinking about her.
“It’s strange because she’s been gone a year, but I don’t feel like she’s very far away,” Rory says. “I didn’t know what I would feel, but I didn’t expect her to be so present — I mean present in my heart, my life and in our daily activities, in our conversations.”
Rory is set to release his new memoir This Life I Live on Tuesday, a.k.a. Valentine’s Day, which is also the anniversary of his first date with Joey.
“It’s me telling stories that I will have forgotten about, and I will be able to go back (to),” he says. “Not only will other people see something, hopefully, in those stories that will encourage them, but I will be encouraged again and again and again and again.”
