OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA: Angus Cloud's mother has not been able to process his death, which happened on July 31. The 'Euphoria' star was only 25 when he was found dead inside his home two months ago.
His mother Lisa was the one who found him and tried to resuscitate him but to no avail.
She has now shared with PEOPLE what Cloud said the night before he died.
“I love you, mama. You're the best. I'll see you in the morning,” Lisa disclosed, quoting her son.

What happened to Angus Cloud?
Cloud lost his life to an accidental overdose, CNN reported.
“He was so beautiful and creative. He loved his home and he loved this little, tiny room. This is where my boy passed away,” his mother said.
About the terrifying moment on the morning of July 31, Lisa continued, “I started shaking him and screaming. I pushed him hard, and he fell on the floor. I tried to resuscitate him — mouth to mouth — and I was compressing him.”
“I was screaming for my neighbor because I didn't want to leave him and call 911, and I just kept at it until they took him away. I miss him so much. He was the love of my life,” she asserted.
‘Euphoria’ maker said Cloud ‘was perfect’
Sam Levinson reportedly said, “Angus was supposed to die at the end of the first season, but I loved him so f---ing much.”
“The first thing I noticed about him was he had those Paul Newman eyes … and his audition tape where he said that his name was Angus Cloud and he’s ‘five foot 12.’ It killed me,” he mentioned.
Levinson added, “He was perfect. I think part of the problem is I would sometimes put actors ahead of the show at times. So I was like, 'Okay, I can't kill him because then what is he to look forward to?’”
Cloud’s ‘Euphoria’ co-star Zendaya also described him lovingly, saying, “He felt like a little brother instantly; ironic because we played characters with the exact opposite dynamic."
“I’m lucky because I got to experience the most beautiful parts of him. I got to watch him create and I got to watch him discover the fact that he was an actor,” remembered the 'Spider Man' actress.
She added, “A damn good one at that, and as many times as I would tell him or compliment his performance, I don’t think he ever truly believed it.”
