Celine Dion Keeps Memory Of Husband Alive With Gold Cast of His Hand

Celine Dion has found a way to ensure she will will not lose René Angélil’s guiding hand from her life. Celine had a gold cast made of René’s hand so she can continue to hold it before she goes on stage to perform.

The 47-year-old performer always held her husband’s hand before going onstage during her Las Vegas residency. When Celine returned to the stage at Caesars Palace after taking a year-long hiatus to care for a dying Angélil she had a cast made of his hand so that she could still touch it for good luck.

It’s been reported that the gold hand was front and centre during René’s memorial at the Colosseum on Wednesday. Celine was joined on stage by her 15 year old son Rene-Charles as well as René’s children from a previous relationship, Patrick, Jean-Pierre and Anee-Marie.

Each person who spoke at the memorial would hold the gold cast of René’s hand while delivering their emotional tributes. Celine bought everyone to tears with her touching words.

“René never hated anyone,” she recounted. “Is it possible someone loves everybody? I don’t think so. But he never told me a person he disliked…Time was precious to him. He loved life so much. He loved life. So very much. And life loved him.”

Celine also shared a heartwarming story about watching The Price Is Right with René while he was battling throat cancer.

“He thought I was so good. I knew the prices of everything,” she explained. “I’m the one who orders the stuff online, so I know what I’m talking about. All this to tell you that I was watching Family Feud and The Price Is Right with him, and he was crying when the person at the end of the show won the showcase! A brand new car and a trip to Hawaii. The person was winning and he was like, ‘I’m so happy for them!'”
