83-year-old gets a tattoo reminder of her beloved, departed granddaughter

Milly Lally wills the energy to raise her voice above the deafening rattle of the wheelchair van. “Am I being crazy?” she asks her hospice aide, Terry Robertson, whom Lally calls “Pat” or “Patty” because that’s what Lally thinks she looks like.
