Many people say that opposites attract. John Hysel is not one of those people.
“That may work for magnets,” he said, “but in my experience, it doesn’t really apply to people.”
Instead, Hysel is a strong believer that the more a couple has in common, the stronger their relationship will be. He and his wife, Linda, have been living that philosophy for nearly 40 years, and continue to do so in the room they share at Mount Vernon Rehabilitation and Nursing Home.
