CELINE DION SPEAKS OUT AT HUSBAND'S MEMORIAL
Celine Dion gave a speech about her late husband René Angelil at his memorial in Las Vegas. The singer said, "Rene never hated anyone or had a wrong opinion about someone. Is it ever possible that someone loves everybody? I don’t think so. But he never told me, he never told me what he disliked of the person he didn't like. And when I think about it, why didn't he? Knowing him so well and I'm sure you would agree with me. Why spending time with me to tell me that this person, he didn't like this one or he didn't like this or he didn't like that. Time was precious to him. He loved life so much, so very much." Click here to listen to: CELINE DION SPEAKS AT HUSBAND'S MEMORIAL CLIP 3
