Songs are often connected to memories and thanks to a very special couple, George Strait’s ballad ‘You Look So Good In Love’ will never sound the same.
The special couple we are talking about is country music duo Joey + Rory. Over the last few months, we have followed their story, and have fallen in love with them. Joey's incredible attitude, Rory's unending love for his family, and their baby Indiana's infectious smile make it easy to love them.
Rory keeps a blog (thislifeilive.com) about his family. He describes their good days, hard days, their decision to end cancer treatment after unsuccessful chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and most recently, Joey's return home to receive hospice care.
Even though Joey can no longer get out of bed, they remain positive. "There isn't a day that goes by that she doesn't look me and her family in the eye and say 'I'm gonna beat this', or 'I'm getting better, I believe that,'" Rory recently wrote. "And she asks me if I believe it, and I do."
He and Joey made the difficult decision to post pictures of Joey, thin and bald, but still beautiful.
"A few days ago, on the last day Joey walked, I took her in my arms in the living room and once more put her hand in mine and we danced," he wrote. "She steadied with her cane and I softly moved her across the room singing George Strait's "You Look So Good In Love" in her ear. In the middle of the song though, as I was being careful not to step on her toes -- she stopped and looked up at me and said, 'How about if I lead?' "

He also shared pictures of Joey sleeping, spending time with their daughters, their dog, and sitting in her chair. Their love for each other is inspiring, their faith remains unshaken, and their bond is stronger than ever.
Listen to the George Strait classic they danced to below. You will never listen to it the same.
