Céline Dion is ensuring that all of her devoted fans know just how much her late husband, René Angélil, meant to her.
"He will be remembered as a gentle man, generous and kind, an unprecedented visionary, a modern Pygmalion, a Renaissance man," read a tribute posted on the platinum-selling singer's Facebook page, in which she also shared funeral plans for Angélil, who died Thursday after a long battle with throat cancer.
"All who had the privilege of knowing him and of working closely with him, whether personally or professionally, salute a leader and a man of great intelligence and wisdom."
Angélil and Dion married in 1994 and were the parents of three sons together, René-Charles and twins Nelson and Eddy.
And even after his passing, the couple's touching love story endures.
