Xavier was a miracle that will forever be in our hearts. He surpassed what was expected of him. He made everything all right when we snuggled him in our arms. He was a little fighter who taught us that life is too short to not live it to its fullest. He also taught us that when you really love someone, they will live forever in your heart. Rest in peace, Xavier John. We love you!
In addition to his parents he is survived by his maternal grandmother, Laurie Gjere of Waukon; paternal grandmother, Tina Pettit of Prairie du Chien and many other relatives.
