Can you imagine loving a group of people so much that you would put it on a billboard?

Marian Sims, a former teacher from Lexington, Kentucky, who is nearly 70 years old, did just that. She put the billboard up to honor and thank 46 years worth of her students.

 “Mrs. Sims still loves you & prays for you! You & your families have all blessed my life in so many ways. Be safe & continue to bless this planet. Than You & God Bless You. Remember… ‘Love Love & Hate Hate,'” the billboard reads.

WKYT did an interview with Sims about why she chose to put the billboard up.

“I put it up close to Christmas time when a lot of people are coming from far away,” Sims said.

“They have created joy in my life, my whole life. For 46 years, it has shaped who I am and what I’m about,” she continued through tears. “They changed my life.”

If you’ll be near Lexington, Kentucky, you can check out the billboard on the corner of Euclid Avenue and East High Street though Jan. 5, 2017.
