Lisa Garzone (left) and Megan Smith (right) were both in love with the same man, John Joyce, at different times in his life.

Lisa married John in 1994 and their marriage ended poorly with John struggling with alcoholism and living on the streets for many years. In 2007, John met Megan who was working as a homeless advocate in Rhode Island.

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