Dear Carolyn was a wonderful friend in "The Girls Group" (as we called ourselves.) I have a million happy memories of our adventures and experiences together.

You will live on in your daughter. You did a wonderful job in raising her and she will do a great job carrying on all that you believed in. You will be missed but never, ever forgotten!

Carolyn was always enthusiastic and cheerful when ever I saw her. She was a friend of my family as they all attended HPark and SMU. No doubt she will be missed. My deepest sympathy to Cathy, Clif and all her family.

Carolyn will be sorely missed by our knit group and all our fellow Scots.
She was a ray of sunshine to us all.

I have known Carolyn since 2009 when she joined the Greater Dallas Chapter, NSDAR. She was an active member, a friend to all, and a very lovely lady. She will be missed.

I have the most wonderful memories of Mrs.Slaughter from my childhood. Childhood on Westminster was so much fun ! Mrs.Slaughter ALWAYS had a smile on her face . I remember the joy she brought by just walking into a room. The world was a better place with her in it ! Now heaven has another star ! Many blessings to her family. Love,Debbie Goodwin Lloyd
