At Final Meet-and-Greet

Ralphie May was in absolutely no condition to meet fans after his final performance, but somehow managed to do just that … hours before his death.
The comedian was scheduled to do a meet-and-greet after his final show Thursday at Harrah’s in Las Vegas around midnight. Problem was … Ralphie already showed signs of his deteriorating condition — no color in his face and glassy eyes.
During the show, we’re told Ralphie talked a lot about how he’d been suffering from pneumonia, which clearly had taken its toll — he couldn’t make it up a ramp, forcing him to meet fans backstage.
TMZ broke the story … Ralphie got back to a friend’s house last Friday around 1 AM, and it was the last time anyone saw him before an assistant discovered his body just after noon.
Ralphie died of cardiac arrest. He was 45.
