It was a surprise party he and a few friends organized for the 71-year-old. He’s holding on to those good memories for as long as he can in light of the tragedy that recently happened: Portia was struck and killed on the road and the driver drove off without rendering aid.

“Love, compassion, empathy, these are the things that could prevent situations how she passed,” said her son Yamil Little. Little was wearing a crown during an interview with WFAA because Portia always said she raised kings and queens. Portia lived in Sacramento, California but as of May had been in the Dallas-Fort Worth area visiting.

“On July 8, 2022, at approximately 9:34 p.m., the suspect vehicle was traveling northbound on 13400 Esperanza Road and struck a pedestrian, resulting in their death. The suspect vehicle fled the scene without stopping to render aid. The vehicle was last seen traveling eastbound on Midpark Road,” read a press release from DPD.

Little tells WFAA his mother was proudly 36 years clean and sober and a sponsor to so many people fighting addiction.
