RIP. Whether you agree with her politically or not you have to admire her passion and dedication to her career. There's no way in hell I want to be working at 87!

R.I.P., Madame Justice. You will be greatly missed. The wisdom, passion, and integrity that you embodied should serve as a high goal for all to reach for.

I just saw that. I'm sorry to hear that.

I wonder how this will work with the election coming up. Remember around the last election when we were without a justice for a record amount of time? I wonder if that will happen again. That could really play a role in the upcoming election. I'm not bringing this up to minimize her death in anyway, so I apologize if anyone is offended by my comment.

She was a woman of integrity, strength and honor. She will serve as a role model for women and minorities for decades to come.

Plus, I worry about who will replace her on the Supreme Court.

Iíd ask what can happen next, but 2020 will take that as a challenge.

will make it possible for Mitch McConnell to further abuse the Constitution. After what he did to Obama's pick, let's seem him try to rush this appointment through before the election.

If there is a Heaven, I am hoping God has already handed a smiter tool to RBG.

She was an amazing role model for all women everywhere.

She was such an amazing woman- so smart, so poised and respectful. She is a true model of greatness. I hope we can honor her by continuing to "fight for what is right in a way that will make them want to follow. "

Unfortunately, Mitch has already addressed the replacement of her seat - that seat that isn't even cold yet. Sad.

For those who donít venture onto the politics board, I think this is worth reading...

ďI think we need some beauty before the fight begins. " Jewish teaching says those who die just before the Jewish new year are the ones God has held back until the last moment bc they were needed most & were the most righteous. And so it was that #RBG died as the sun was setting last night marking the beginning of RoshHashanah"

It was metastatic pancreatic cancer. It had spread to her liver. It's challenging to treat liver cancer with chemotherapy because the function of the liver is to filter out toxins. Immunotherapies may offer better options but they're still fairly experimental.
