Default Prayers for Don Rogers

I just read a post from Don Rogers daughter requesting prayers for Don. He just received word from his doctor that he will need quadruple bypass surgery. I consider Don a great personal friend and a huge contributor to the Early Ford V-8 Club, to the Fordbarn, and to our hobby in general. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

Sorry to hear that Don is not travelling too well at present. I first met Don back in 2009 and really appreciate his friendship over the years. His wealth of knowledge that he willingly shares is greatly appreciated. Will remember Don and his family in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. This photo of Don with his 1935 Ford Panel Delivery was taken at the Grand Nationals in Dearborn last year.

Best wishes to him. A pretty routine surgery these days, so he should be fine after his recovery.

I met Don last Summer at the Benson Ford Research Library after the Grand National meet. He is very helpful with sharing his experience and knowledge with others. I have been through that surgery four years ago and pray for a successful outcome for Don.

Thanks John for sharing this - Don is the best - bypass these days is much improved - my Dad had quad bypass and came through 100% - my prayers that Don has the same experience.

Thanks for posting Don's condition. I plan on visiting him as usual at Hershey, I always pick up something from him, along with some good banter.

See you in October, Don, God bless.
