Obama says RBG 'fought to the end, through her cancer, with unwavering faith in our democracy

and its ideals' and calls for the next president to fill her vacancy

"Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought to the end, through her cancer, with unwavering faith in our democracy and its ideals. That's how we remember her," former President Barack Obama wrote in a blog post Friday, honoring the late Supreme Court justice, who died earlier in the day.

"She was a warrior for gender equality someone who believed that equal justice under law only had meaning if it applied to every single American," Obama wrote, praising her trailblazing career as both a "relentless litigator and an incisive jurist."

Obama said that Ginsburg "inspired the generations who followed her, from the tiniest trick-or-treaters to law students burning the midnight oil to the most powerful leaders in the land," including he and former first lady Michelle Obama.

Obama also referenced Ginsburg's dying wish, which was reportedly that she "will not be replaced until a new president is installed," in calling on Republican senators not to fill the vacancy she left on the Supreme Court.

1. She fought for her life until the last minute for us and this country.

I have no doubt about that. She was giving it all to the end.

2. Know first hand

how those last 6-8 weeks of life can be for a Pancreatic Cancer suffer can be. Sat at the bedside of my Father In law who passed from Pancreatic Cancer. When diagnosed,it was just plain to late and in the last stage. His last week was brutal. He was just loaded with Morphine to kill the pain. Watching a 170 pound man go to 89 pounds in 6 weeks was not pretty.
