In terms of population, Florence, Texas, is not a shrinking town – even though most high school kids leave after graduation, never to come back.
But the new arrivals make up for those who leave.
Some come to work in the fields. Some, like Francisco “Pancho” Rodriguez, work in the quarries.
His job was cutting and carrying limestone blocks – arduous and dangerous work.
One day, Kambrah Garland, the owner of a local vineyard, placed a want ad for workers. Pancho interviewed for the job — and their lives were forever changed.
