One thing is for sure, Celine Dion is not alone during this heartbreaking time!

As we previously reported, hundreds of mourners flocked to the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal to pay respects to the All By Myself singer’s husband Rene Ang├â┬⌐lil following his death. Now that’s support!

After the Grammy winner and her son Rene-Charles greeted the many grievers, as seen in the official memorial pics (above), the music icon made sure to issue a short statement to express her thanks for all of the support.

She shared:

“The support we’ve received has been such a blessing.”

It’s said that a large number stood in the freezing cold for a long time, so that they might be able to say goodbye to Rene and give their condolences to the 47-year-old. The memorial service ended at 9 p.m.

Not to mention, the industry vet also lost her brother Daniel to cancer last week. If anyone needs a lot of love lately, it would be Miz Dion.

One guest who waited three hours in line noted:

“Celine is Quebec. She is an ambassador for Quebec. And this was her great love, and we had to be there for her. They’re inseparable├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥they’re like one person, and now she lost half of herself. So I feel for her. And he was such a great man, and he was such a great soul. We had to celebrate his life coming here today.”

We’re not crying, you’re crying! Another guest added:

“I did tell Celine, ‘thank you for being here’ because she’s receiving everyone, one person at a time, and she’s taking more of her time. That’s why we kind of froze for hours before getting inside: It was worth it because it wasn’t like in-and-out, in-and-out ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ she actually took the time; she shook our hand, and some actually even kissed her. It was very personal words, even the eye contact. She was very sincere.”

Wow! What a brave and considerate woman.

And on the back of the program given to those who attended the wake, Celine even had a personal note, which read:
