An El Paso man who lost his wife in the shooting was left overwhelmed after hundreds showed up at her memorial service on Friday.

Margie Reckard was one of 22 people killed by a gunman at a local Walmart store on August 3.

Reckard’s husband Antonio Basco feared that few would attend his beloved wife's service, so he reached out to a funeral home and asked them to invite the El Paso community.
