Rory Feek reflects on Joey's funeral

Rory Feek has paid tribute to his late wife Joey Feek, describing her as "the greatest person I've ever known".

The 49-year-old singer made a touching blog post, in which he reflected on his spouse's funeral service, which took place on March 8, a few days after she lost her battle with cancer.

He wrote: "In a grove of sassafras trees behind our farmhouse, with friends and family gathered around, we said goodbye to the greatest person I have ever known."

Rory detailed how the couple's loved ones had spoken during the service and admitted he couldn't find the words to express how much his beloved wife had meant to him.

He continued: "When it came my time to speak, I walked up on the stage and stood looking at my wife's sweet picture ... and words were not enough to let her know how much she meant to me -- how much she still means to me."

After Joey was laid to rest, mourners spent the afternoon a few steps from Joey's garden, hugging and loving and celebrating the beautiful life she lived."

And the day concluded with Rory and the couple's two-year-old daughter Indiana taking a stroll back to the singer's burial site for some final reflection.

He concluded: "And then we took a deep breath and did what Joey would want us to do. We remembered that she's still with us. She'll always be with us. In our Hearts. Forever."

In the post, Rory shared a number of photos from the day, as well as a video celebrating Joey's life.
