together in so many ways; and

nizes the many contributions of Our Lady of Grace Widowed Support Group,
and wishes this worthy organization continued success in its proactive
mission to benefit the communities it represents; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
