As the country mourns her loss, many are hoping her legacy will never be forgotten.

It has been reported that in Ginsburg’s final moments with her family she stated her wish was for the winner of the 2020 presidential election to nominate her successor to the highest court in the land.

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said, “She was so warm and compassionate, she remembered details about people’s lives.”
