Indiana Feek isn't letting dad Rory Feek out of her sight after losing her mother Joey Feek to cancer. The 2-year-old's father shared a sweet photo of them bonding less than three weeks after the Grammy nominee's death.
Rory, 49, took to Instagram to share a photo of his youngest daughter clinging close by him on Sunday. In the caption he wrote that she refused to "leave her papa's side." The photo showed Indiana sitting by Rory's foot in what appears to be the kitchen of their home.
This father-daughter duo has been closer than ever since Joey's passing. On March 13, they attended a memorial service for the wife, mother and musician at a local high school in Alexandria, Indiana. Rory and his baby girl were greeted with a standing ovation inside the gymnasium where they joined fans, family and old teachers and coaches of Joey's to look back on her life. According to People magazine, attendees sang some of Joey's favorite songs during the memorial, including "Lean On Me."

Joey was laid to rest on March 13 in an intimate ceremony held at the farmhouse she and Rory once shared with their children. Following the burial Rory took to their family blog, titled This Life I Live, to share details about the funeral with curious fans. He wrote that close friends and family attended to bid farewell to "the greatest person." While the funeral was small, Rory made sure that it included a musical guest. According to the blog post, the Isaacs were invited to perform "It Is Well with My Soul" — a song in which singer Bill Gaither croons about "swans and deer and the sweet girl who looked out the window from her hospital bed and saw beauty in life and also in death."
Joey died on March 4 after battling stage 4 cervical cancer since 2014. Rory documented her steady decline over time on their family blog, sharing photos, pictures and stories with fans. He chronicled the many ways in which Joey attempted to stay involved with her family as well as the ways in which she prepared them for life without her.
