He was taken away from them, leaving them with a hole that can't be filled. Amidst the closure that comes with justice, Allison revealed:

Of her late son, Allison, who is mourning, recounted Botham as a man who was dedicated to faith and family.

He cherished his parents as well as his elder sister and younger brother, with both age differences of ten years each.

To Allison the years apart didn't matter because while giving her statement, she said:

"I always refer to him as the glue of my three kids."
