Two days after his wife Joey's death at 40 years old, Rory Feek began preparing for the heart-wrenching day when she will be buried on the family's farm in Tennessee.

Rory posted a picture of the farm in Pottsville on Instagram Sunday, writing that he is "making plans that I hoped we would never have to make."

The country singer, who was part of the Grammy-nominated band Joey + Rory with his wife, announced Joey's death after a battle with cervical cancer in a blog post on Friday.

"My wife's greatest dream came true today," he wrote. "She is in Heaven. The cancer is gone. The pain has ceased. And all her tears are dry."

Joey requested to be buried on the farm in Tennessee in a "rough-cut wooden box with a cross on it" to be made out of wood from the farm, Rory wrote on the couple's "This Life I Live" blog in November 2015.

"And find a good spot in the family cemetery in the field behind our house, where we put your mama's ashes last year," Rory said Joey told him. "(Leave) room enough beside my headstone for you to join me someday ... in God's time."

"Whatever she wants, that's what I want,'' Rory wrote.

In the first images released after his wife's death, Rory also posted heartwarming pictures of the couple's daughter, Indiana, 2, spending time with him and her friends.

Joey was diagnosed with cancer about three months after giving birth to Indiana in 2014. She died only weeks after Indiana's 2nd birthday on Feb. 17, saying she did not fear death.

"I pray that one morning I just don't wake up," she told the Tennessean in November. "But I don't fear anything because I'm so close to God and we've talked about it so many times. I know he's close. And I know he loves me. I'm really at peace. I still believe there's healing in prayer."
