But Celine did find courage and strength in her three sons Dion and Angélil’s three sons René-Charles, 14 and 5-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy.Whose hands she held during her husband’s open casket funeral at Montreal’s Notre-Dame Basilica the same Catholic parish where they got married 21 years ago.
It was not long ago that the she celebrated her twins birthday at Disneyland in Anaheim, California in October 2015 the same time her husband Angelil’s health deteroitaed rapidly.
Even before the funeral proceedings got over Celine received a phone call from her elder brother Daniel Dion’s family informing Celine that he had died of throat cancer on January 16th 2016, two days after her husband René Angélil passed away on January 14th 2016.
