Erik James Klemm was born Monday, February 13th, at 3:33 AM to parents Cole and Jennifer Klemm.  He weighed 1 pound 10 ounces and was 12 inches.  Erik was able to experience his Mommy and Daddy holding and kissing him before passing away peacefully in his parent's arms at 5:10 AM.  Heaven's gain was our loss when our angel was called by our Lord.  Erik came into this world too soon and was taken too soon.  Though he was here a short time he touched many lives and will forever be loved.  He will always be his parent's precious angel and Finley's little angel brother and they will hold him again in Heaven one day. 

Erik is survived by his loving parents, Cole and Jennifer, big sister Finley, maternal grandparents, Lon and Linda Rundquist, paternal grandparents, Kevin and Julee Klemm, great grandparents, Jim Zuleger, Nelda Klemm, and Betty Rainaldo, Aunts and Uncles, Mike and Jess Sperl, Travis and Amy Gilles, Aaron and Anne Rogers, and cousins Bennett and Brady Sperl and Marshall Gilles.  
Erik is further survived by numerous great aunts and uncles.

Erik is preceded in death by great grandparents, Robert Rainaldo, Jim and Polly Rundquist, Bunny Klemm, and Joan Zuleger, and great uncle Dean Klemm.
A private, family service will be held at Hemer Funeral Home on Saturday, February 25th.   
How very softly you tiptoed into our world, almost silently, only a moment you stayed. But what an imprint your footsteps have left upon our hearts.
