Army Couldn't Prepare Texas Florist For Church Massacre - Patch.comTuesday, November 28, 2017
He's received an outpouring of support from across the country, filling orders from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Florists from out of state have even offered to come and help him with the arrangements. One from northern Colorado will be at the shop on Wednesday, Santiago said. On Tuesday morning he had bought more than $500 worth of flowers to meet the demand. His wife was in Sutherland Springs, hoping to spread the word about the discount and help the town in any way she could. "All funeral services I'm doing half off and if they can't pay, I'll just take it out of my pocket," Santiago said. "These are my people, we have to take care of them."It's the least he can do, he said, to help the community he's come to call home.Santiago finished his Army career in 1997, and rather than return to New York, he stayed in San Antonio and ran a trucking company until he and his wife later settled in Stockdale and bought MooValley flowers from an elderly woman. "We bought a home out here. My wife said I have to find something to do, so I bought a flower shop," he said. His shop sits on the side of the four-lane highway, offers delivery and gets busy during the holidays — Mother's Day, Christmas and Valentine's Day, and also provides arrangements for funeral services. It doesn't have a Facebook page, website, or other social media because Santiago is not tech savvy. After all, Santiago said, he's not in the business for the money. "It's not a profitable job," he said. "But it makes you happy inside."Also See: Emotional Healing In Sutherland Springs Will Take A Long TimePhoto Credit: Wally Santiago Subscribe ...
