Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

BAYARD, Caroline Anne (nee DAFFOS) -

Bayard_Caroline(April 27, 1947 – September 9, 2014)

Caroline lived a full and remarkable life that was characterized by her kind nature, marked by her distinct intellect, and motivated by the liberal love that she showed to family and friends.  

Caroline passed away on September 9, 2014 at the age of 67 due to complications from multiple sclerosis, a disease she courageously and positively battled for over 25 years. 

She is survived by her beloved husband of 42 years, Kenneth Sherman, her children Sebastien, Pascal and Natacha, her daughter-in-law Connie, her grandson Evan, her future daughter-in-law Zoë and many friends.

Caroline was born in Toulouse, France in 1947. Her parents were the late Bernard and Lucienne Daffos. Her childhood saw her live both in France and the Antilles.

In 1968, Caroline immigrated to Canada to pursue her life-long passion, the study of literature, languages and philosophy.  She completed her Doctorate at the University of Toronto.  Shortly thereafter, she became a professor at McMaster University where she taught until 2006.

Over more than three decades as a professor, she befriended countless colleagues and students.  During these years, she taught in the Department of French, was an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Philosophy and participated in the Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition.  Committed to interdisciplinary and transcultural studies, she expanded her expertise from poetry and literary criticism to contemporary European philosophy and cultural studies.  She authored several books.

Her career and friendships led Caroline and her family to live in Western New York, Montreal, Prague and southern France. Caroline will be remembered for her commitment to helping others and for her belief that education enriches life.

Ken and her children will miss her deeply, love her forever, and are at peace in the knowledge that she remains in our hearts, memories and laughter. Her family is forever grateful to Christine Marshall and the staffs at Alexander Place and Joseph Brant Hospital for their care and support.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.

George never shied from adversity, be it forced labour in wartime Russia, starting over in a foreign country (or three) or farming tobacco in Tillsonburg.

He loved African violets, cracking wise, working out at the YMCA and staying connected with his siblings, nieces and nephews. Thanks to Myrna and Ben Atangan.

Funeral to be held in Toronto on Wednesday, September 10th.  Shiva at 5444 Yonge St., PH 10, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m., ending September 15th.

Donations to the Holocaust Education Centre or the Association of the Soldiers of Israel.
