FRANKLIN, Tenn.—Shirley Batchelder is the first to admit that her life has been "fantastic."
The 94-year-old was married for 57 years, and now spends her days in a quiet retirement community, painting, leading the recreational games in the home and visiting with her family.
But for all this, Shirley still had one thing she wanted to check off her bucket list.
Her plan was to purchase five seconds on TV to share a message, but when WSMV heard about her request, they decided to do a profile on her and give her the time to share her mysterious message.
"Love one another," Shirley said. "Love one another."
Sound familiar? Shirley's powerful message echoes the words of Jesus in John 13:34:
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another."
