The Dions’ heartbreak heartbreak continues.

One day after saying farewell to her husband René Angélil at his funeral, Céline Dion joined her family as they mourned the loss of her older brother Daniel Saturday at a visitation at a funeral home outside of Montreal in Repentigny, Canada.

Tribute was paid at Salon Charles Rajotte in Repentigny from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. local time.

In a previous statement to PEOPLE, the family remembered Daniel as “a gentle and reserved man of many talents.”

Daniel was 59 when he died of cancer last week. His death came just two days after Angélil also succumbed to a battle with the disease.

“They’re close; she’s close with all of her siblings,” a source told PEOPLE of Dion, 47, and Daniel. “It’s hard.”

On Monday, family and friends will say goodbye to Daniel at a funeral at the St-Simon-et-Jude parish in Charlemagne, Quebec, where the family was raised.

“The support we’ve received has been such a blessing,” Dion told PEOPLE Thursday at her husband’s public memorial at Montreal’s Notre-Dame Basilica, where the widow remained all day to receive condolences from friends and fans who waited hours in the cold to pay their respects.
