You can just feel the heartbreak. A young mother, dying of cancer, kisses her two-year-old daughter goodbye.

Years ago, you might read about a celebrity's death and be sad about it. But, these days, you can experience the hopefulness, the sadness, and the grief as if you're right there.

That's been so with country singer Rory Feek's blog, "This Life I Live," in the two years he has been documenting his wife Joey's ongoing battle with cancer. In 2014, Joey was diagnosed with cervical cancer. In 2015, the Joey + Rory singer told her fans that the cancer had spread and she was ending treatments.

In his most recent post, "One Last Kiss," Rory tells a heartbreaking story: Joey's final days. Joey, he writes, recently said a final goodbye to her parents and siblings. "And then she asked me to bring our baby in."

Joey held Indiana, kissed her, and said: "You be a big girl for your papa. And mama will be watching over you." One last kiss.
