  24. Evan was such a fighter!! He overcame so much and was getting stronger everyday. I loved working with Evan during his hippotherapy sessions. Evan enjoyed riding the horse. Even when he had had bad traditional therapy sessions, he always participated in hippotherapy to the best of his ability. Evan sat up so straight on that horse. He hated riding backwards as he had to hold his body up on those arms of his, which was so hard. Evan made front page news on his first hippotherapy session. I never could figure out why they used a photo of him crying when 90% of the time he was happy on the horse. I will miss Evan. May he rest in peace. I will remember him alway.\ Tami
