Prison Stripes or Candy Stripes?

According to this article, more than 3,000 people die each year of natural causes in US correctional facilities. Of course this is bound to happen with over 7 million people imprisoned in this country and 1/3 of them over 50. This reality has led to a number of hospice programs starting up within correctional facilities. And who better to volunteer at these hospices than prison inmates themselves?
