When a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso earlier this month in a mass shooting that left 22 people dead, Antonio Basco lost his only living relative — his wife Margie Reckard. Having no family in the area, Basco invited the El Paso community to attend Reckard's memorial service in a Facebook post published by Perches Funeral Home that went viral. On Friday night, hundreds of well wishers waited in line for hours outside the La Paz Faith Memorial and Spiritual Center to attend the public service, ensuring that Basco would not have to say goodbye to his wife alone. | August 16, 2019 | 📷: @sandy_huffaker | #GettyImagesNews #ElPaso #Texas #ElPasoStrong #AntonioBasco
