Joey+Rory’s family gathers around Joey’s hospital bed, reminiscing about sweeter days Facebook/JoeyandRory

As news of Joey Feek’s condition has slowed to a trickle in recent days, a heartwarming picture was posted on Joey+Rory’s Facebook page late in the afternoon on Jan. 26 that gave concerned fans a reason to smile.

The picture shows Joey in her hospital bed, with family surrounding her, including her adorable daughter Indiana. “My sister Marcy reminiscing w Joey (and Indy) about how they started the restaurant together nine years ago,” Rory wrote in the post. “What a beautiful blessing Marcy Jo’s has been to our family and so many others.”

Indeed, the role that Marcy Jo has played in the life of Joey+Rory as a couple was on full display in their submission video for the reality television competition “Can You Duet” back in 2008.

“Her and my sister Marcy opened the meal house last year,” Rory said in a voice-over in the video. “They wanted to create a place for people in our community to gather and a place where people could share in each other’s lives. They have some incredible food, but I think most people come because they love the girls.”

They still do.
