Celine Dion attended a memorial service for her brother Daniel Dion on Saturday, but was reportedly too grief-stricken to attend the funeral today. According to Entertainment Tonight, the singer and her children opted not to attend because they could not endure another day of public mourning.
Daniel’s weekend memorial service took place just one day after Celine’s husband, Rene Angelil, was laid to rest in Montreal. The two men both died of cancer the same week. Daniel, one of Celine’s 13 siblings, died on January 16 -- just two days after Rene passed away. His funeral was held at St-Simon-et-Jude parish in Charlemagne, Québec, where the family was raised.
Rene’s funeral was held Friday at the Notre-Dame Basilica, the same church where he and Celine were married in 1994.
