Our prayers are with Celine Dion as she mourned her brother Daniel Dion a day after her late husband, Rene Angelil was laid to rest. She and her family honoured Daniel Saturday at a visitation at a funeral home in Repentigny, near Montreal.

Daniel, the youngest of Celine’s seven siblings, died at age 59 on Jan. 16, two days after Angélil, the 73-year-old father of the singer’s three children. Both men passed away after battling cancer.

As Celine, 47, and her family gathered at the Salon Rajotte Charles funeral home, they sang together to honour Daniel, who was also a singer, Le Journal de Montréal reported. Dozens of people gathered outside to offer their condolences. As Celine prepared to leave in a vehicle, she rolled down the window to thank several of them, the outlet said.

Daniel is survived by his siblings, their mother Thérèse Dion, 88, his two children Valérie and Marie-Michelle and grandchildren Matis and Laurianne.

His funeral is set to take place on Monday at the Saints-Simon-et-Jude Church in Charlemagne, CTV News reported, adding that Celine’s husband is due to be buried in the Côte-des-Neiges cemetery in Montreal.
