Joey Feek died on Friday, following a lengthy battle with cervical cancer, and her husband, Rory Feek, is busy making burial plans. 

Rory took to Instagram on Sunday to post a picture of clear blue skies, along with the heartbreaking caption, "...making plans that I hoped we would never have to make."


According to Us Weekly the photo was taken at Rory's Tennessee farm, and the "plans" he refers to are his wife's funeral arrangements. The Owens Memorial Services website reveals that Joey will be laid to rest in a private ceremony at the Feek family cemetery. However, a date has yet to be confirmed, the publication reports.

Fans have been deeply moved by the post, with comments including, "My heart breaks for you.. God give this family strength amen," "My heart breaks for you and your family," "This is so heartbreaking @roryandjoey your family is in my prayers," and "The caption just shattered my heart!!"

Commenter jdexter1981 also shared their thoughts on how much Joey's life had touched their own, writing, "Beautiful place to rest. Such a wonderful family. Many prayers of hope and love to you and your beautiful family. Never met and probably never will but your family battle has touched and changed me for the better, thank you for letting us be a part of your story."

On Sunday, Rory also posted a second, happier picture on Instagram. This time, it was a snap of his toddler, Indiana, with her "best friend." He captioned the sweet image with, "...reunited. Indy's happy to see her best friend Scout (and Scouty's little brother Ash)."
