Celine Dion attended her brother Daniel’s visitation on Saturday.

Celine Dion’s heartbreaking week continued on Saturday as she attended an intimate memorial service for her late brother Daniel — just one day after she laid her husband Réne Angélil to rest.

The 47-year-old singer joined her family in mourning Daniel at the visitation, which was held at a funeral home in Repentigny, Quebec, close to where they grew up.

Dozens of others also attended the service to honor Daniel, who died at 59 last week after suffering from brain, throat and tongue cancer. He will be buried at a church in their hometown of Charlemagne on Monday, according to People.

Daniel died on Jan. 16, just two days after Angélil passed away at the age of 73 following his own lengthy battle with throat cancer.

On Friday, Celine Dion bid farewell to her longtime husband at an emotional service at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal — the same venue they got married in 21 years ago.

Dion was visibly emotional as she leaned down and kissed her husband’s casket at the funeral — which was livestreamed online so fans around the world could pay their respects to the acclaimed music manager.

The singer was accompanied by her mother and three kids at the service, where her oldest son Rene-Charles offered a touching eulogy.

Dion was visibly emotional as she laid her husband to rest on Friday at an emotional service.

“Fifteen years is not a long time for a son to get to know his father,” he said, according to CBCNews.

“You’re a tough act to follow, but with your help, everything is going to be fine,” he continued. “I promise you that we are going to live up to your standards.”

A public memorial will also be held for Angélil on Feb 3 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Dion is set to resume her residency there next month.
