In Memory of Lockard Young - Author & Friend



Lockard - Lockie to his friends and family - was a terrific storyteller.  He was also a frequent guest on the Scribbler and one of his posts reached an all time high of 1005 visits -  he was a popular guest.








Unfortunately, Lockie left us on December 26th, 2016. He's dearly missed, not only be friends and family at home but by the dozens of friends he made online through his writing efforts. He always had a smile and it would be difficult to find anyone friendlier, always eager to help.







This week I would like to celebrate Lockie and share the previous posts with you.



This is the most visited post from September 11, 2016 and I invite you to take a look HERE!



Lockie wrote many amusing short stories. One of them was plagiarized and reached an audience of over 10,000 shares. A testament to his writing skills but he was never paid for it. An author's nightmare.




Lockie's first visit was a 4Q Interview back in 2014. Check it out by going HERE!






His short story - The Lone Shepard appears HERE!



A sample of his poetry here and stories inspired by his visit to Africa with his wife Trish. HERE!




His short story - Are You Sure? HERE!


I hope this post is a tribute to an author I admired. Lockie is gone but his words live on...as does the memories.



Thank you Lockie. RIP my friend.

  2. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
