Sometimes a moment is created by circumstances that cannot be explained as coincidental. One
of those moments took place in 1969, in the Marshall Islands, on the island of Kwajalein when
Margaret met and started dating William Santiago. They were married on July 17, 1971 in Lake
County, California. They raised their family in Napa, California where they lived for 40 years
before settling in Boise, Idaho.
