When his 13-year-old son had heart problems and died three years ago, James Frye couldn't attend the funeral. He was locked up. And Steven Burley aches to be able to comfort his wife, whose mother died in March. But he can't. He's in prison, too.

Those men joined about 100 others for one of three memorial services yesterday inside Maryland Correctional Institution at Jessup, a medium-security prison with about 1,100 beds. They squeezed their eyes shut and lifted their arms in prayer. They listened to preachers and speakers tell them to let go of their feelings of guilt and to embrace grief.

"This is a prison full of men, so if your mother dies or your child dies, you can't sit around and cry," said Warden Carolyn Watkins, who attended the afternoon service.
