Celine Dion’s Husband Preplanned His Funeral to Lessen Emotional Burden

Celine Dion's husband preplanned his own funeralThere have been several celebrity deaths in 2016 already, from David Bowie to Alan Rickman to Glenn Frey of The Eagles.

Singer Celine Dion experienced two tragedies in her family just days apart: the death of her brother Daniel Dion and her beloved husband of 21 years, Rene Angelil, both of which succumbed to cancer.

Now news is coming out that Rene had planned his funeral ahead of time so he wouldn’t have to burden his wife with the planning process during an emotionally difficult time. The spouse and manager had made sure everything was in order leading up to his death. Little did he know how crucial this would be, as not only would Celine be dealing with the death of her husband but also her brother. Funeral pre-planning helped alleviate a lot of stress for the singer, allowing her the time and energy to devote toward simply grieving.

Preneed life insurance is an option that can be discussed and includes prearranged costs for after-life expenses. The local Casey, IL funeral home would also be happy to discuss funeral trusts, or contracts between the individual and the funeral home that lock in an individual’s burial cost at a price that won’t change with inflation.

Famous people may have millions of adoring fans, but they also have friends and family who can benefit from thoughtful pre-planning. If we can learn anything from the deaths of these prominent figures in pop culture, it’s the importance of planning ahead no matter your degree of celebrity.
