Here is Celine’s full statement from her website.

“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.

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.

We will never forget all of the kindness that you have bestowed upon us.”

Rene Angelil passed away on January 14 in their house at Las Vegas, Nevada after a long, hard battle with throat cancer. Dion’s elder brother, Daniel also succumbed to cancer two days after.
