Antonio Basco lost his only close relative in the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. But he did not mourn her alone.
Basco’s wife of 22 years, Margie Reckard, was killed at the Walmart. He told the funeral home planning the service for his spouse that he wanted to invite members of the public to attend her visitation.
Hundreds turned out to the visitation Friday night to support Basco, grieve after tragedy and remember a woman many did not know.
