    To lose a husbad and a sibling within a matter of days is very tough. God rest the souls of the departed and comfort Celine and her family at this painful period. Amen

    I wept while watching this video, i’ve never seen such a humble, grateful and gracious woman. The grieve is written all over her face and to stand 7 whole hours greeting strangers, fans alike is the most touching. She did love him whole heartedly. I pray that God comforts her and her family through all of this. She was and still is Renes masterpiece. RIP Rene!!

    At least she knew love in her lifetime . MY fear is to never know true love in this life.
