His Parents Live On
Ronald Porter is a 30-year-old educator whose parents were a huge influence on him both personally and professionally, even though his mother died when he was just 12 years old. In this edition of StoryCorps Tampa Bay, Porter talks about his mother’s free spirit, her outlook on life, and how both his parents live on inside him all these years later.
