When my Pepere passed this year, it was decided he'd be buried at Arlington National Cemetery for his commitment and dedication to both the United States Air Force and Army.
My Pepere was also, if not more committed to his sweet tooth, forget diabetes. That's why, when all our family met up from various ends of the country at the end of June, I thought cupcakes would be a cheerful way to remember Pepere for his favorite sweets; coconut, chocolate, PB, and strawberries.
