I tried to resuscitate him – mouth to mouth – and I was compressing him,” she recalled. “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,” adding, “I miss him so much. He was the love of my life.”

She continued, “It’s abundantly clear that he did not intend to check out of this world,” adding, “His struggles were real. He gave and received so much love and support to and from his tribe. His work in ‘Euphoria’ became a lightning rod for his generation and opened up a conversation about compassion, loyalty, acceptance, and love.”
