The 47-year-old publicly mourned loosing her beloved spouse Rene Angelil on Friday (22Jan16) using the couple's three children by her side, and even though she was a part of her sibling's memorial service every day later (24Jan16), sources tell Entertainment Tonight grief took its toll around the star, and she or he was compelled to skip at a later date of mourning while you're watching media and fans.
Instead, the Think Twice singer paid her last respects to her 59-year-old brother for the memorial service, stuck Salon Charles Rajotte in Repentigny.
Daniel, one among Celine's 13 siblings, lost his fight with cancer on 16 January (16), just a couple of days after Rene, 73, died of the disease.

Celine held hands while using couple's twin boys Nelson and Eddy, five, during the entire service, while her eldest son, 14-year-old Rene-Charles, read a moving eulogy to his father.
