Dalia Faheid

Libby Stroik fondly remembers when she was little — waking up at sunrise with her grandfather, tiptoeing into the kitchen and drinking milk and sugar with a hint of coffee. She would climb into the "gentle giant's" lap with her mug and they would sway in his rocking chair and watch the chirping birds out the window for half an hour.

But Harry Golomski, a 97-year-old retired dairy farmer who now lives at an assisted living facility, has trouble remembering his granddaughter.
