Francis and Joseph Cardullo had children
Enough for a basketball team out in Yonkers
A son and four daughters, the light of their lives
Little did they imagine the future they harbored

Catherine and Georgia, MaryEllen and Nicky
And Nancy the youngest, they moved to Cape Cod
More suited to raising of kids than a city
The sand and the breakers, the old promenades

Catherine, the eldest gave birth eight times over
Georgia had two of her own along the way
Catherine and Georgia were stricken with cancer
Survived by their parents were Catherine and Georgia

Nancy the baby, now fast turning forty
A picture of health, diminutive body
A call from the clinic, it’s still in the family
The world upside down, the world topsy turvy

Her doctor said "Nancy, I'll be here to help you
We'll use every option, we'll do all we can"
Alternative treatments, the strength of your spirit
We'll find our way through this
My name is Katherine"

The winter was whipping the snow round the cottage
Where Nancy was shedding the shell of her soul
Katherine the doctor turned Nancy's care over
To a registered nurse from the local hospice

Who entered the bedroom and took Nancy's hand
Looked in her eyes and said "You're not alone
With five of your loved ones and me here to help you
We'll find our way through this
My name is Georgia"
