in small steps, individuals can learn to walk again; and
  WHEREAS, Our Lady of Grace  Widowed  Support  Group  is  a  family  of
friends;  contributing as a group in a unique way, the members reach out

events such as Bake Sales, Anointing  Mass,  the  Easter  Fair  and  the
Christmas Fair, as well as many others; and
  WHEREAS,  Our  Lady  of  Grace Widowed Support Group is under the able
leadership of Esther Soscia, Rose Lovetere, Elenore Molinari, Sue Fortu-
nato, Terry Koestring, and Betty Pellicano who sacrifice their time  and
work  for  others,  and  its  captains,  all of whom help hold the group
together in so many ways; and
  WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative  Body  recog-
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
