Dear Cabana Family,
We will all miss your loved one (Dr. Cabana). He has touched so many of our lives. I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from this amazing human being. He sparked my interest in corrections with his exciting stories from the field. His sense of humor and ability to connect with almost everyone he met was incredible. He used his experiences with the death penalty to educate us all about the topic and managed to change quite a few minds in the process. It was a pleasure having him as a professor at USM. I am also immensely grateful for his guidance, encouragement and continued support over the years. My students and I were thrilled beyond belief when he came to speak to us (at Troy University) about his book and the death penalty. They still talk about it to this day. We are all saddened to hear about his death. He was an inspiration to us all and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are with you all.
