    My condolences to the family. Mr Charles Slaughter and Mr Jim Guy were great Boy Scout leaders in Eudora when I grew up there. I really enjoyed Mr Slayghter and learned a lot from him. Had some much fun camping at their farms snd going to camp Nash under his supervision. I really appreciate all the time Mr Skaughter dedicated to the Eudora boy scouts. I will always be grateful and could not have asked for a better person. RIP
