as well as make mortgage payments on their home and other expenses,” the

from millionaires, Pun’s wife and children do not receive royalty checks for
Pun’s first two albums, and only one small royalty check was paid for Pun’s
final album. The family’s attempts to get the money due to his children have
been unsuccessful to date.”

funds will also go towards getting legal help, in order to collect money from
albums sales the estate feels belongs to Pun’s children.

as of press time was just over $10,000 with 5 days left in the auction, which
