This time, it is heartbreaking, and I am not even a country music fan.
I've been following the story of country singer Joey Feek for several months. I first read about her on Facebook. Diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014 three months after giving birth, this singer, who sang with her husband Rory Feek as the duo Joey + Rory, passed away at the age of 40 on Friday.
The blog post her husband wrote to announce her death is one of the most touching blog posts I have ever read.
He had started the blog in 2014 and he is a blogger of great strength. (And if you are wondering why I chose the blog headline "A Dream Come True" - read the post. It will break your heart, just like a good country music song.)
Joey, besides her husband, left her two year old daughter, Indiana. Indiana has Down Syndrome. I hope, as she grows up, she will be inspired by her late mother. And by her father.
This song is from 2012 - "When I'm Gone".
And one more song "That's Important to Me."
Cancer truly sucks. We can only count the days until it is finally defeated and I never have to blog about anyone having cancer, ever again.
I will be taking a two week break from Music Monday. One more music post March 27. Next Monday is Pi Day (how can I resist?) and the 21st is Reveal Day for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
In April, I will be participating in the Blogging from a to Z Challenge.
What's on your mind this morning?
