Celine Dion's Son Rene-Charles Angelil Gives Speech at His Dad's Funeral (Video)

Celine Dion‘s nearly 15-year-old son Rene-Charles Angelil gives a speech to honor his late father at his funeral held on Friday afternoon (January 22) at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, Canada.

“Fifteen years is not a long time for a son to get to know his father. You had a busy life, but we were communicating through golf, hockey, poker, and smoked meat,” Rene-Charles started his speech.

“And a lot of other wonderful food. Bonding more and more as time went by. You left me now with enough good memories of you to share with my younger brothers [Nelson and Eddy]. As they grow older without you being around, I’ll make sure to pass on what I’ve learned from you,” Rene-Charles continued. “You are a tough act to follow, but with your help everything is going to be fine. Dad, I promise you here that we are all going to live up to your standards.”

    No doubt trying to hold on for his mother’s sake. Seems like a nice young man.

    Wow, what a great words to honor his father. Even if someone helped him with the speech, it’s very mature to give his father respect this way.

    René had three older children from his first marriage…I can only find one reference to them anywhere, without pictures; his son also spoke and the another son and daughter attended. Nothing except Celine’s grief and her children is awfully insensitive to his other children. They are grieving just as much…
