Jade's spirit comes to me as a butterfly says mum Jackiey

Tuesday May 26, 2009

Speaking from the Canary Islands where she is spending time recovering from the death of her daughter Jade Goody, Jackiey Budden has revealed she believes she gets messages from the afterlife.  

The spirits of reality TV star Jade and Jackiey's brother Budgie, who died 22 years ago, come to her as butterflies she tells the Daily Mirror.  

"One of the butterflies is tiny and the other is big and I know it is Budgie playing with her just as he did when she was a little girl," says Jackiey, who sleeps with Jade's hospital gown under her pillow.  

On arrival in the holiday resort she had a biblical verse from Jeremiah tattooed on her foot, honouring one of her daughter's last wishes.  

The Big Brother star asked her friends to have the words: "Call to me and I will answer," inked on them because she found them comforting
