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 ...
