Back in the 1950s when I was growing up in Jackson, Tom Mallette was the second Scoutmaster at St. Richard's. He followed John Fennell and preceded Jim Korndorffer. All three were towering figures for me as a young boy. I love the way God moves us around and reconnects us. Yesterday I was speaking with my cousin who lives in Jackson. She said she didn't know why she thought of mentioning it, but she told me there would be a big funeral on Monday at St. Richard's for a Mr. Mallette. Of course, I had an immediate flashback to those days. I remember him working with us with his two sons in tow who must have been pre-school at the time. Praise God for a wonderful man and for reconnecting me with him at the time of his passing. My condolences to the family.
