As Joey Feek's health worsens, her husband and partner in the hit-making country duo Joey + Rory opened up on his blog over the weekend about his wife and how she wants to be remembered.

"I carefully choose what I share. It would break my heart to have the thousands of 'before' photos out there of her looking beautiful and healthy all these years . . . be replaced in people's minds and hearts by a single 'after' photo of what cancer has done," Rory Feek wrote in a Sunday post on his "This Life I Live" blog.

"She wants to be remembered as a singer of songs. A devoted wife. A loving mother. Not a cancer patient. And so I have tried to be very careful. To honor her. But my wife is braver than me," he added.

The award-winning husband-and-wife country duo has been dealing with a looming loss following Joey’s decision to end her futile cancer treatments in late October and spend the rest of her days in hospice care with her family at her side. Joey, 40, was first diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer in May 2014, just two months after the birth of the couple’s daughter, Indiana.

"This is our life. It's what He has given us to live. And share," Rory Feek wrote in his blog post. "Sharing what we're going through with others is really all we have to give . . .  If you share what you're going through with me . . . maybe I'll be able to draw something good from it if I am one day in your shoes."

Rory Feek said the couple recently shared one last dance before Joey became bedridden, as he sang George Strait's "You Look So Good In Love" in her ear.

"Though now, she can no longer get out of bed — she is so sharp and clear and her pain, for the most part, is so under control by the medicine that talking to her — you would think she’s her normal self. Thinner. Much thinner. And with a hip new hairdo. But she is beautiful. So so so beautiful," he wrote.
