Celine Dion’s husband, René Angélil, will be laid to rest this coming Friday in Montreal, at the Notre-Dame Basilica, where the pair wed in 1994.

A celebration of Angélil’s life will be held on February 3 in Las Vegas at the Caesars Palace Colosseum.

The funeral arrangements were announced via Dion’s Facebook page, as follows:

“According to his final wishes, his Funeral will be held at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, where 21 years ago, he chose to marry the one who will remain as the great love of his life, the artist for which he had the most respect, the woman who gave him light and happiness until his very last breath.”

Only two days after the passing of her husband, Dion lost her brother, Daniel Dion, to cancer. Daniel was 59 years.

Dion promptly cancelled her January 16 and January 17 performances at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and will be returning to her Las Vegas show on February 23. In the meantime, the family is asking for privacy.
