EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14) — Margie Reckard, 63, is among the victims who died in the mass shooting Saturday.
Reckard leaves behind her husband, Antonio Basco.
Basco and Reckard were together for 22 years. Her husband said he misses her more than ever and said she’ll always be his angel.
“When I met her she was an angel and she still is,” said Basco. “I was supposed to be the strong onebut I found out I’m the weak one, and she’s going to be missed a lot.”
Basco said Reckard's kindness and selflessness was incomparable.
“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.”
Basco describes their life together like one straight out of a fairy tale.
“I just feel it and when we first met, that feeling came to each one of us, to each other, and we’ve been together ever since,” he said. “We were gonna live together and die together that was our plan.”
He said Reckard may be gone today, but for him it’s like she never left.
