Just days after the death of her husband Rene Angelil, Celine Dion now has to face another family tragedy with the death of her brother, Daniel Dion.

We learned that Daniel had been diagnosed with terminal cancer just days ago when Daniel and Celine’s sister Claudette Dion told a gossip site that it would be only a “matter of days or hours.” when it came to Daniels life.

Daniel had been battling throat,brain and tongue cancer and he passed away early saturday morning surrounded by his family.

Daniel left behind two daughters, Valerie and Marie-Michelle, two grandchildren Matis and Laurianne and “many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends, who are remembering a gentle and reserved man of many talents,” according to E!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Dion and Angelil families at this incredibly difficult time.
