Celine Dion Gets Emotional During René Angélil's Memorial Service

Celine Dion gets very emotional during a memorial service for her late husband René Angélil at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace on Wednesday (February 3) in Las Vegas, Nev.

“Let me start by saying good evening good friends. Rene, the love of my life, would be so happy to know we are here together. I feel the love in this room,” the 47-year-old entertainer told the crowd. “This is my home away from home. At the same time I’m supposed to feel extremely comfortable being home and right now I’m not sure how comfortable I feel.”

René never hated anyone. Is it possible someone loves everybody? I don’t think so. But he never told me a person he disliked. Time was precious to him. He loved life so much, so very much,” Celine added. The couple’s son Rene-Charles, 14, watched on as his mom gave her heartfelt speech.

“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.”
