Basco fondly remembers his wife as an angel. “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 told the Associated Press last week.

“You see Margie, more or less, was the brains of the family. We were gonna live together and die together. That was our plan,” Basco added.

Services for Reckard will be held between 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday at Perches Funeral Home, 4946 Hondo Pass in El Paso.
