(Newser) – Shirley Batchelder has lived a "fantastic" life. The 94-year-old of Franklin, Tenn., was married for 57 years to a man who was "handsome as can be," has three children, plenty of grandchildren, and now hosts games at Steeple Chase Manor Retirement, just like her idols Pat Sajak and Vanna White, whom she once met. "They were nice," Batchelder tells WSMV. But with a simple act, Batchelder has finally crossed her last wish off her bucket list: She put a five-second ad on TV. On a black background, three words stood out in white: "Love one another," Batchelder says, adding it's up to you to do what you wish with her message.
