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 wrote a 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.
