This was taken at one of the last public events he attended -- January 11th I believe. If you visit the Tampa Bay online website here you can see in a television interview how shockingly thin and frail he had become. He looked and acted more like an 80-year old man than a 59-year old. The disease just took him and ravaged his body.

All i remember is great plays and great hands from a great receiver! He could have easily been the one to make the catch but he was always double teamed which left Dwight Clark open. I will always respect, love and miss you freddie!
