Singer Celine Dion has posted a message on her website, thanking fans for their support after the death of her husband Rene Angelil.
The singer’s husband of 21 years passed away earlier this month after a long battle with cancer and Celine posted a message on her website on behalf of their kids, Rene-Charles, 15, and five-year-old Eddy and Nelson, and Rene’s children Patrick, Jean-Pierre and Anne-Marie, from previous relationships.
“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 Rene, 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,” Celine wrote.
“I would also like to sincerely thank the Quebec Government for honoring Rene with National Funerals as well as the many individuals and organizations who came together to hold such a beautiful tribute in his name.
“We will never forget all of the kindness that you have bestowed upon us. On behalf of our family, with all of our love, Celine, Rene-Charles, Nelson & Eddy, Patrick, Jean-Pierre & Anne-Marie (sic).”
