    So sorry to see this note in the Coshocton newspapers. Bob Rogers was a longtime Plainfield friend over the years, and a classmate at Plainfield High School. His Dad, "Dod" was well known to the students as a school bus driver. Wanted to remember Unita and the families with sincere condolences and deepest sympathies. His friendship and our memories of growing up in the Plainfield area will be long remembered. He will be missed. Ed Johnson, Colonel, USAF (ret) Georgetown, TX.
