    I love to her stories like this one! I think they give hope to families who have a missing loved one.


    War, a car crash, a man with amnesia

    Neither a war, a fiery car crash or a 12-year separation caused by amnesia could extinguish Cindy and Charles Hyzy's love for each other.

    "It's quite a love story. It's like a Nicholas Sparks novel," said Cindy's friend, Debbie Douglas. "It's a pretty unbelievable story. I told her she needs to write a book."

    The book jacket would summarize how Charles "Chuck" Hyzy disappeared in 1968 on his way to report for duty at an East Coast U.S. Army base. Cindy Hyzy long believed a mix up occurred at the base and he shipped out to Vietnam.

    Unbeknownst to his young bride in Itasca, Chuck Hyzy was in a car accident roughly 800 miles from home and suffered what one area doctor calls a "very rare" case of long-term amnesia.

    Wow! What a wonderful story! She should write a book! Amazing!

    I am a firm believer in that everything happens for a reason and this story confirms it for me. Call it destiny, fate, karma, coincidence, or sheer luck...they both ended up in the right place at the right time.

    This would also make a great movie called Fate.

    The young mother of twin boys believed he'd contact her. But days turned into weeks that turned into months and then years.
    Eventually she moved on, but she could never find the true happiness she had with her high school beau.
    Then, unexpectedly, they crossed paths at a Chicago car repair shop 12 years later -- almost to the day he disappeared.
