Our Punkin...............who could ever forget Punkin............I never knew where that nickname came from!  I DO remember, though, the smile he always had on his face.  He just always seemed so happy!  It saddened me to learn he'd passed from this world because of such an awful disease, and at so young an age.  Would have liked for us to be able to meet his wife and children.
