Our deepest sympathies to Xavier's family and friends, especially his Mom, his two daughters and his beloved wife Lisa. We are so lucky that our paths crossed and feel very sorry that Xavier left so early. Xavier, you had so much to offer and we can tell that you have made your family very proud all around. You are missed by all of us here in Georgia (the country). You really were the epitome of a life-loving, friendly, constructive and respectful human being. We will definitely miss the enlightening conversations we had on a regular basis about the world, history, health, music etc... Until we meet again... Maka, Nina, Pierre & Jean-Paul

Xavier is a great man. He taught me much about class and being a gentleman. He is both in abundance! He stands strong and will never let anyone push him around! He is a fine example for me as a man and I'm honored to know him. May he be in our hearts forever. For The X-Man! Love you brother!
