Hello everyone

A man is talking about his deceased mother:
My mother loved me very much.I was the oldest son of the family. I did anything she wanted. I never let anyone disrespect her. Be it my brother, my sister, a relative or a stranger.

He means he never let his siblings or a relative or a stranger disrespect his mother.

Does the highlighted part sound correct and natural in this context?

Please tell me your opinion.

    Is this transcribed speech? There doesn't seem to be any good reason for the full stop after "disrespect her". "Be it..." belongs to the previous sentence.
