I loathed her politics, but no one deserves something like this. Condolences to her family.
Peace to her and her family, especially her kids.All things like
this do happen for a reason and we are supposed to "confess God's hand
in all things". We don't know why, but we must trust there is a why.
@4blade2007I recognized the rapid progression from a woman I treated while
I was a resident. It is a horrible disease. I am very sorry to hear that it
took your wife.
My condolences to her family. @ 4blade2007: There are 3 strains of
CJD, only one of them is linked to food (mad cow disease). It is too early to
say which form of CJD Becky Lockhart had - tests are being run to make that
determination. There is another story in the paper that explains it. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your wife.
@md - in other words - mad cow disease. My wife passed away from this horrible
disease in Sept. 2012. Once the symptoms start the disease destroys the brain.
My wife started by losing her memory, small motor skills, handwriting, ability
to cook, do laundry, dress self. The last month she stopped eating, talking
and wore a diaper. She could hear and had her vision and was walking until the
last 48 hours until she went into a coma, her organs shut down and that was it.
She passed away six months after her first symptoms. - Terrible way to see your
loved ones pass away.
Although I vehemently disagreed with her politics, I am saddened to hear this.
My God bless her family.
I'm so sad. What a terrible loss.Life is so fragile!
Well that certainly explains a lot.
Becky Lockhart will be remembered as a citizen-legislator trying to improve
things for her fellow citizens, not as a "politician". A very rare
person indeed.She will be missed, and had much more to contribute,
and would have been a great Governor, had she decided to run for that office.Thoughts and prayers for her family on this awful and unexpected loss.
Speaker Lockhart was someone who made a difference through her service. She
will be missed.
Politics aside, Prayers and Healing for her Family and Friends...
Becky Lockhart is an exceptional person! She represented her district well
including giving personal response to phone calls and emails. As Speaker of the
House, she was a credit to the State of Utah and she served as a role model (at
least to me) that you can get things done by showing respect and kindness to
all. To the Lockhart family, thank you, for sharing your wife, mother,
daughter, and sister with this great State of Utah and all the citizens
therein...Becky accomplished a lot in her short life.
Such sad news. Condolences to the Lockhart family.
Thank you for the time you took away from your Family to try and make Utah a
better place to live. Your service is greatly appreciated. Condolences to your
