Celine Dion Greets Mourners at Husband’s Wake

We saw the somber scene outside of the memorial service for Celine Dion’s husband, Rene Angelil. The service was held at the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, Canada. The 47-year-old singer lost her husband to cancer and then suffered the loss of her brother Daniel to the same fate just two days later. Despite her grief, Celine tells People Magazine, “the support we’ve received has been such a blessing.”  Many family, friends, and fans have shared their condolences with the beloved singer. According the People and TMZ, Celine greeted almost every mourner in attendance. Crowds remained at the Basilica, waiting outside in the cold, until the late hours of the evening. Fans said Celine actually took the time to greet fans and it was very personal. It’s no denying that Celine’s loss has been met with a lot of love.
