“I met you the day before John died.”

Lisa Garzone (L) and Megan Smith(R) were in love with the same man, but at very different points in his life.

Lisa married John Joyce in 1994. Their marriage ended badly and John ended up living on the streets for many years while struggling with alcoholism.

In 2007 he met Megan, who was working as a homeless advocate in Rhode Island.

John Joyce died in 2013. At StoryCorps, Lisa and Megan talked about the friendship they’ve developed since his death.
