Austin Bermel

Services for Austin James “A.J.” Bermel, 5 months, were Saturday, April 20, 2013, at St. James Lutheran Church in Crystal, Minn.

Interment was at St. Jeanne de Chantel Cemetery in Corcoran.

Austin was born Nov. 3, 2012, at St. John’s Hospital in Woodbury, Minn., and died April 11, 2013, at Lucile Salter Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, Calif.

Austin had a smile that lit up every room and brought joy to everyone who was in his presence. He loved music and received great pleasure from listening to his father play guitar for him every day. His father will continue to play guitar for him, as we know that he is still listening from above. Austin was loved and adored, will be missed greatly, and will never be forgotten.

Survived by his loving parents, Steven and Anna Bermel; maternal grandparents, Gary and Linda Nelson; and paternal grandparents, Jim and Karen Bermel as well as many other close family and friends.
