My thoughts and prayers. God bless.
I’ve known Rudy, Barbara & Eddy since the mid 70’s, when Rudy’s nephew, Doug Peronia & myself started working together at ( then ) Delta Consolidated in the shipping department. I, along with my ( then ) wife, Donna, attended all family gatherings at , either the home of Duffy & Betty or at Egypt, whoever’s house that was. I know the food was good & always duck dressing. Those Cummings ladies could COOK!!Barbara was kinda quiet but Rudy talked enough for both. Good memreez with the Cummings / Peronia families. Sorry I couldn’t attend the service, but, Doug knew I had y’all’s back in prayer. Heaven gained, we lost Rejoice with Barbara as she has joined Eddy, mom, dad & brother RIP BARBARA
