22 years together
Antonio Basco and his wife Margie were looking forward to their golden years together. They had no other family but they loved each other. And then some 21 year old gunhumping punk came down from Dallas to shoot him some Mexicans for his leader Trump.
An El Paso man has invited the public to his wife's funeral after she was killed in the mass shooting this month because he has no living relatives to help send her off.If you are in El Paso on Friday, well you know what you can do.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Perches Funeral Home said Antonio Basco, who was married to Margie Reckard for 22 years, has extended an invitation to the public for his wife's funeral on August 16.
"Mr. Antonio Basco was Married for 22yrs to his wife Margie Reckard, He had no other family. He welcomes anyone to attend his Wife's services. On Friday August 16th, Perches Funeral Home Northeast on 4946 Hondo Pass from 5-9pm. Let's show him and his Wife some El Paso Love. #EPSTRONG," the post said, alongside an image of Basco kneeling at a vigil for the victims of the shooting.

According to KVIA, a local ABC affiliate, the funeral parlor holds roughly 200 guests.
Basco told Associated Press last week that his wife of over two decades was "an angel."
"I mean you didn't even have to be there to talk to her. You could just look at how she was, how she acted, how she presented herself. She was an awesome lady," he said. "You see Margie, more or less, was the brains of the family."
"We were gonna live together and die together," Basco added. "That was our plan."
Reckard, who died aged 63, was born in Washington D.C. on August 21, 1955. She passed away on August 3, 2019 after a gunman, identified as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, opened fire at a Walmart near the Cielo Vista mall in El Paso, Texas, leaving 22 dead and dozens more injured.
