An El Paso, Texas, man whose whose 63-year-old wife was killed in last week’s mass shooting at a Walmart in the city, has invited the public to her funeral, explaining that the two have no family left to join them.
In a Facebook post, Perches Funeral Home wrote that Antonio Basco had no living family members and was hoping as many people would attend his wife of 22 years’ funeral as possible.
“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,” the funeral home wrote.
The funeral is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
Local ABC affiliate KVIA reported that the venue holds about 200 people.
“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,” Basco told the AP.
