Dolly Parton took to social media on Saturday to pay tribute to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The post, which featured an image of Ginsburg, was followed by the caption, "She was small in stature but even the tallest looked up to her. Her voice was soft but her message rang loud and clear and will echo forever. Thank you, RBG. Rest in Peace. Respectfully, Dolly Parton."

Hundreds took to the comments section to offer up their own condolences for the family and loved ones of the beloved Supreme Court Justice.

Ginsburg died in her home on Friday evening surrounded by her family. She was 87 years old.

"Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this evening surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer," Supreme Court Spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Friday.

President Trump said in a statement to reporters, "She led an amazing life. What else can you say? She was an amazing woman, whether you agree or not. She was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I'm actually sad to hear that."

Many from across the political world to the entertainment industry have made their own tributes to Ginsburg, including Meghan Markle, who released a statement.

"With an incomparable and indelible legacy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will forever be known as a woman of brilliance, a Justice of courage, and a human of deep conviction," Markle said.

"She has been a true inspiration to me since I was a girl. Honor her, remember her, act for her," the Duchess of Sussex continued.
