When her mum, Leslie Ann Bando, died of a sudden heart attack in December 2015 aged 59, Caitlin Hallock, 28, fretted about forgetting the sound of her voice.
But Caitlin has revealed how, for the last month, she has been regularly listening to Leslie wishing her a happy birthday by holding a phone over her amazing new inking, adding: "Now I can hear my mum whenever I need to."
