His bedside; prescription vials, Believe Hat.

When I went to bed last night, I finally had the courage to look over to his side of the bed where he has suffered unbelievable nights. I know I will not be able to clean the area bedside for a long time. There were numerous prescriptions, enough to supply all the drug addicts in San Diego. And then there it was. His Believe Hat. He was so thin that he was never warm so he often wore it in the house and when sleeping. So there they will remain, his drugs and his Believe hat for now.
