Theme of the Show: Design and End-of-Life
Guest: Ann Rowland, Commander, Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller www.sosjvancouver.org
Lead Host: Sharon Simpson
Our special guest today was Ann Rowland who spearheaded the largest project of The Sovereign Order in the British Columbia area – the 2013 building of the $5.3 million St. John Hospice located on the UBC campus. Hear how her passion and design skill helped to create a serene and beautiful space for those who are at end-of-life as well as for their families.
This show was also our one-year anniversary show! Leela Chinnia shared the eulogy of her father, Siva Chinnia. Leela is the Program Coordinator for Vancouver Co-op Radio and is the brainchild behind a radio show solely dedicated to the topic of death, dying and loss. Our inagural show honoured Leela’s mother, Marie Claire Chinnia.
