Tribute to Xavier

A long overdue tribute to the late Xavier Engle. Words could never do justice to the legend of "Xavi" but here is my best effort.

County 5: Xavier

Great job Oliver. I truly appreciated it. I'm overwhelmed today with many emotions. Having returned from an amazing trip with friends and the celebration of life found through adventure with those we care about, I'm forced into grief again finding out the loss of yet another friend. Ying and Yang. Light and Darkness. Joy and Sorrow. It's been 4 friends since September and my heart is growing tired. We're illuminated by the light of those that shine bright, their warmth filling a void in us. We celebrate the life they lived and lament over future adventures without them. Shine bright everyone...
To air is human, to get big air divine.
