Joe Garza looks down at his seaman's cross as it rests on his chest inside the dining hall of the Port Lavaca Nursing Home. The seaman's cross is a sign of protection for those working on the water. Garza bought the cross from women on boats in the Gulf of Mexico while he was a deckhand on a shrimp boat.
