Funeral for El Paso victim gets overwhelming response after husband's public invite


EL PASO, Texas (WTHR) — There has been an overwhelming show of support for a man who lost his wife in the El Paso mass shooting.

Perches Funeral Home had posted that Antonio Basco had no other family and was inviting the public to the funeral for his wife, Margie Reckard.

She was among 22 killed Aug. 3 in the shopping center attack.

The response to that post has been so great, that now the funeral service Friday has been moved to a larger venue.

Reckard herself had children and grandchildren, though it is not clear how many will be attending her funeral.
