Even in death René Angélil is supportive of Celine Dion.

According to Dion's longtime stylist and friend Annie Horth, the late music manager planned his funeral prior to his tragic and sudden passing last Thursday.

Angélil, who was sick with throat cancer since 1998, made his arrangements sooner than later so his beloved wife wouldn't have the burden of executing logistics while in mourning. The move isn't too surprising since the father lived for the singer during their blissful marriage of 21 years.

Annie explained:

"René was generous enough to prepare all of this since the last few months with Céline. He didn't know when it would happen, but he really wanted everything to be already prepared."

How thoughtful. We imagine this gesture is especially helpful for the icon considering she also lost her brother Daniel Dion to cancer just days after René's death.

Horth spoke on C.D.'s state of mind given the kind act, saying:

"Celine is going through this peacefully and with control."

What a relief.

As for the funeral service, the stylist admits the Notre-Dame Basilica couldn't be a more perfect place to say goodbye to the cherished husband:

"The whole funeral, that was all René's wishes. He obviously wanted to have his funeral where he married the love of his life."

So touching. We hope the send off on January 21 is just as special as René was.
