The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told her granddaughter that she wished to be replaced after the next president was inaugurated.

Ginsburg passed away Friday at the age of 87 after a long battle with metastatic pancreatic cancer, but according to a report from National Public Radio, she dictated one last wish with her granddaughter Clara Spera. (RELATED: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead At 87)

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed,” she said.

Despite Ginsburg’s wish and calls from Democrats to delay until after the election, President Donald Trump is expected to name a potential nominee in the coming days.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said late Friday that the Senate would vote on Trump’s nominee.
