Don's Aunt Esther was married to her late husband Edwin "Ed" Rechtman, Don's father's brother. She has always been and is still a stalwart source of strength and inspiration for the family. Don was unable to attend her party in Atlanta; instead, his participation and celebration has been in the creation of this song and a phone call from his home in China.
Lyrics by Esther's granddaughter Rachel Winter
