March 26, 2021. San Francisco, California. For six months, Gregory Sanchez lived in a tent in between two trees along the sidewalk of 15th and Julian Ave in the Mission district. He would often get emotional talking about all the family and friends he lost which he believes led to his life on the streets. One of those friends he spoke of often was Ronnie Marianda, whose death was particularly devastating for Gregory. This old phone on Gregoryâs phone shows him on the right and and Ronnie on the left standing outside their old housing projects in the Mission, just half a block from where he ended up living on the streets.
