Paul David Martin 356 Lake Harbor Rd. Brandon, MS 39047 Tel 601.829.XXXX Cell 601.672.XXXX January 12, 2006 Rapides Parish Grand Jury (2006 Session) 700 Murray St. Alexandria, LA 71309 Attention: Grand Jury: Forman Re: Heather Renee’ Skarina-Skeen Dear Sir or Madam: Heather was a beautiful person both inside and out. A lover of all things, great and small, a friend too many and enemy to few. A person you could always count on to be there for you no matter what. I never knew anyone who loved life and themselves more than Heather did. I meet Heather in 1999 through a group of friends. Naturally I was immediately attracted to her stunning beauty and bubbly personality. Over the new few years our friendship grew stronger and stronger. Some would say we were best friends. I thought of her as a sister. To my surprise, I had no previous knowledge that Michael Skarina was Heathers biological father until days after Heathers death. In all the years we have been friends, she never once spoke of him. Heather and I have been through a lot together, both good times and bad. Now Matter what, she always had a smile on her face and a sparkle in her eyes. She loved children and wished for one of her own. Heather never would have considered suicide. She wasn’t a quitter! Heather didn’t believe in giving up. Especially on life. Sincerely, Paul D. Martin
