"Even as a child, I was called to the sacred ministry that is funeral service.  In a nutshell, I meet wonderful people on some of their most difficult days, and have the honor of helping them celebrate the life of the loved one they have lost.  Equally as important, these fine people trust me to walk with them on the beginning their grief journey, hopefully offering comfort and peace of mind.  These are responsibilities I do not take lightly.  I have had some amazing mentors in Green Bay and am proud to serve the community at what I feel is the finest facility in all of Northeastern Wisconsin, with some of the best people I have ever met."  Jeane Smits
