    Several years ago Cackie Baldwin and her husband Bob moved to
    Matthews Glen, formerly Plantation Estates, and became my
    across the hall neighbors. Cackie was gregarious and very
    involved with our community. I found myself becoming great
    friends with the Baldwins and my heart aches at her passing.
    My sincere sympathy goes to her family and many friends.
    Rest In Peace Cackie! -- Marion Ratliff-Matthews, NC
