Celine Dion Releases Statement After Rene Angelil's Funeral

Celine Dion is reaching out to her fans to thank them for their support following her late husband Rene Angelil‘s funeral last week.

“My family and I are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support from so many people who have touched our lives during these past few days. We have felt your love for René, and your prayers and compassion have helped us during this most difficult time… more than you’ll ever know. I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” the 47-year-old singer wrote in a statement on her website.

“I would also like to sincerely thank the Quebec Government for honoring René with National Funerals as well as the many individuals and organizations who came together to hold such a beautiful tribute in his name,” Celine added. “We will never forget all of the kindness that you have bestowed upon us.”

Rene‘s funeral was televised in Canada and streamed online around the world. One of the most touching moments was when Celine‘s son Rene-Charles gave a speech to honor his father.
