METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The Saints and the family of Will Smith will host a visitation for guests wishing to pay their final respects to him on Friday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Saints’ indoor practice facility.

A private family burial and funeral service will take place on Saturday.

Guests will be able to park for free in available parking lots at the Saints complex, with overflow parking at the adjacent Zephyrs parking lots.

Guest lines will be clearly marked and will form along the back fence of the Saints property behind the Pelicans training facility and proceed into the south entrance of the Saints indoor practice facility to pass and view the casket. There will not be a ceremony or any funeral service elements during this time. There will be a celebration of Smith’s life both on and off the field presented through photographs and video. 

Smith was shot and killed late Saturday night in the Lower Garden District.
