Chances are you never got the chance to meet Joey Martin Feek before her untimely death in 2016. Chances are you have never been given the chance to hug her precious daughter, Indiana. And chances are that the pain you once felt over Joey’s death is beginning to fade, seeing how happy little Indy is with her loving daddy Rory remaining by her side and raising her so well.
But all it takes is a picture or a video to remind us all once again how much we wish Joey was still here to see Indiana grow up … and shine.
In a way, it’s as if we all feel like honorary parents of little Indiana. We feel protective of this amazing little girl who claimed our hearts from the moment we laid eyes on her. So to watch her flourish from afar — well, there is nothing like it.
In recent pictures on Instagram and videos on Facebook, we see the leaps and bounds the three-year-old has made, and how she now is walking and talking so very well, including recently wishing her big sister Hopie a very happy birthday.
And it warms our heart.
And oh how it would have warmed Joey’s heart, too.
