Just two days after the tragic death of his wife Joey, Rory Feek took to Instagram to share preparation details for her memorial service.

"… making plans that I hoped we would never have to make," the country singer, 49, captioned a photo taken at his Tennessee farm.

According to the Owens Memorial Services website, 40-year-old Joey's private service will be held at the Feek family cemetery, though the date has not been set.

As Radar previously reported, the singer-songwriter lost her battle with ovarian cancer on Friday, March 4, 2016, Rory announced on their family blog.

"My wife's greatest dream came true today. She is in Heaven," he wrote about his wife. "The cancer is gone, the pain has ceased and all her tears are dry. Joey is in the arms of her beloved brother Justin, and using her pretty voice to sing for her savior."

The country couple have one daughter, Indiana, 2, who has Down Syndrome and was the apple of her mother's eye. Rory wrote about her saying goodbye to the little girl just days after her second birthday.

"She asked me to bring our baby in. And so … I set our little Indy on Joey's lap and we all cried with my wife as she told her how much her mama loved her and, '…you be a big girl for your papa… and that mama will be watching over you.' And then she pulled Indiana up and she kissed her," he wrote of the special moment.

Rory wrote that he and Indy, and his two older daughters from a previous marriage, are returning home to the family farm in Tennessee.
