During Sunday night's Academy of Country Music Awards, Joey Feek was honored with a tribute and standing ovation.
Martina McBride and Darius Rucker announced the tribute. The crowd applauded and stood for Feek.
She died on March 4, and her husband Rory Feek wrotea blog post about the last month.
In it, he wrote:
It’s hard to believe that it’s been a month already since Joey left this world and made her journey to the next. In some ways it feels like only yesterday, and in others… it feels like forever.
I miss my wife… I miss my best friend. I miss her voice and her laugh and her eyes and her smile. It’s still hard for me to imagine that she’s not here, and she’s not ever coming back. But I know that time will make it easier. Because that’s what time does. It heals what is broken. There will still be scars, but I know there will come a day when I won’t miss her this much, when I won’t wonder where she is… and what she is doing right now in heaven.
