Celine Dion shared a photo and message honoring her late husband, Rene Angelil, on the fourth anniversary of his death.
The 51-year-old singer took to Instagram Wednesday to share a photo of Angelil, who died in 2016 after a lengthy battle with throat cancer. In the image, he’s smiling and looking directly at the camera while holding a sleepy puppy in his arms.
“There is not a day that goes by without me thinking about your beautiful smile,” the star captioned the post. “We miss you, thank you for watching over us my love. I love you. Céline xx…”
Angelil died at age 73 at the couple’s Las Vegas home. Dion married him in 1994. Angelil was a former singer-turned-manager when he received an audiotape of Dion, then 12, from her mother.
“At that time I had been in the business for 20 years,” Angelil recalled in a 1991 interview with The Associated Press. “In those 20 years, I had never heard or had a feeling come out of someone like this little girl I had in front of me. I had shivers all over, you know.”
Together, they had three sons, René-Charles, 18, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 9.
