Celine Dion -- The Sad Goodbye

Celine Dion needed all the support Thursday as she left her late husband Rene Angelil's public wake.

Celine was guided out of the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal by her son Rene-Charles and another family member after thousands came to pay their respects. 

The funeral is today.

Angelil died last week after a long battle with cancer.
