The touching tribute followed Rory's heartfelt blog post, in which he shared images from his wife's funeral.

While our hearts break for this family, especially Joey's 2-year-old daughter, Indiana, what a wonderful way to honor her life. As Indy grows up, she will always be able to look back and see how her mother moved and inspired all those who knew her.

Though this may provide just a small bit of comfort to Feek's grieving husband and little girl, in years to come having these memories will, hopefully, offer solace when they need it most.

For fans who've followed Feek's heartbreaking journey, gathering together to lift their voices may have given them a small sense of peace as they said their final good-bye to the woman whose courage and grace lives on in their hearts.
