There was a standing ovation and a fair few tears at County Hall when ill health forced one of West Sussex County Council’s cabinet members to resign.
Debbie Kennard, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities, had a lung transplant in 2015 and told her fellow councillors that she had since developed some serious health problems.
Struggling to speak at first, a tearful Mrs Kennard said she had "absolutely loved" the role she has held for the past two years.
Lauding the work of the county libraries and the fire and rescue service, she said: “It’s been a great privilege to work with teams of amazing, dedicated staff. It’s been inspiring and I count myself truly blessed.”
She added: “It’s been an honour to see all the work you all do.”

West Sussex’s council leader, Louise Goldsmith, has survived a second confidence vote in as many months - after an inspection found failings with the county’s fire and rescue service.
Last month, opposition parties brought a vote of confidence over a damning Ofsted report which found the county’s children’s services were inadequate.
However the council, which has a large Conservative majority, rejected those calls.
Labour councillor Michael Jones, who brought the vote, slammed the “political decisions” he said were responsible for the failures.

Jofra Archer's mother and stepfather speak of pride over their son helping England to victory.
Sussex Chris Jordan admits that he felt emotional watching his Sussex and England team-mate Jofra Archer keep his nerve under pressure in last night's electrifying Lord's finale.
Jordan was the man who discovered his fellow Bajan back home in their native Barbados, before helping him to bring him to Sussex in 2016.
“I was sat there thinking regardless of what happens, I’m still very proud of him to have even got to this stage on that journey," Jordan told BBC Sussex.
“Watching Jof go through all that brought so many emotions. I found it hard to get my words out but it brought a tear to my eyes."
As to whether Lord's Archer would be the man for the job in what proved to be a Champagne Super Over, Jordan added: "He was the best person in that team to do the job.
"I'm not at all surprised. I called it from the start. He has plenty of variations and was the most fitting person for that final over. No occasion is too big for him.”
Gwen Stanbrook, 20, says she's not a big cricket fan but her 80-year-old grandma "is really, really into it".

Police in Crawley want to talk this woman, seen with her Chihuahua dog, over racial abuse directed at another dog walker in a Crawley park.
The victim of the abuse, a local woman, was walking her own dog in Tilgate Park when the Chihuahua came up to them.
The Chihuahua owner then approached and kicked the victim's dog hard across the grass several times.
When the local woman remonstrated with her for this cruelty, the woman pictured reportedly racially abused her.
The woman pictured, who police want to talk to is described as white, about 19 years old, 5'8", with long "whitish" hair, and of medium build, wearing tight blue tie-dye jeans, a khaki bomber jacket with two orange stripes on the cuff, black trainers, and an ankle bracelet and a ring on the middle finger.
Another woman who was with her during the incident at 16:00 on Wednesday 19 June, is described as white, about 19, 5'9", with long black or very dark brown hair, and of heavy build, wearing black trainers, black leggings, and a high waist beige off the shoulder jumper.
