Celine Dion’s husbad, Rene Angelil, made sure all of his funeral arrangements were set before his passing in order to ease the burden from his wife of over 20 years.

Angelil died last week at the age of 73 after a long battle with cancer. Dion’s brother, Daniel, then passed away just a few days later, also from cancer.

Dion’s longtime stylist and friend, Annie Horth, told People, “René was generous enough to prepare all of this since the last few months with Céline” and because of this she has been “going through [this] peacefully and with control.”

She added, “He didn’t know when it would happen, but he really wanted everything to be already prepared.” The funeral was at the same church Dion and Angelil got married 21 years ago.


Dion has canceled two Las Vegas shows in the wake of her husband and brother’s deaths.
