Posted: Updated:

After serving the constituents of Nebraska's 48th Legislative District for the past eight years, Scottsbluff Senator John Harms is stepping down due to term limits.

On Thursday afternoon, Harms stated that saying goodbye came with a heavy heart.

During his closing speech, Harms thanked his wife Pat of 51 years and his staff members. He says the thing he will miss the most is the friendship that his colleagues provided over the past eight years.

Harms concluded with a quote, which he says is one of his favorites.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass," says Harms. "It's about learning to dance in the rain. And colleagues, thank you for teaching me to dance in the rain. It's been appreciated."

Senator's responded with a standing ovation as Harms stepped down for the final time.
