“And find a good spot in the family cemetery in the field behind our house, where we put your mama’s ashes last year … with room enough beside my headstone for you to join me someday … in God’s time,” Rory wrote of Joey’s wishes.

“It’s hard for me to imagine being there without Joey, but at the same time … it is where she wants us to be,” Rory wrote in a blog post after Joey’s death. “It’s where she will be … She’s gonna be in the mint growing beside our back deck, the sweet-corn frozen in our freezer and a million other places that her hand and heart has touched around our little farmhouse and community. Joey will still be with us. Everywhere.”
