“Happy Days” Cast Remembers Erin Moran

This weekend, Hollywood lost another child star whose rise to fame was found in a beloved 70s sitcom. Erin Moran, Joanie Cunningham on the hit show Happy Days, passed away at the age of 56. After an autopsy, it has since been confirmed that Moran’s cause of death was complications due to cancer. Now, her costars of Days have commented on her passing, either to People Magazine, official statements, or Twitter, and have had kind words to say about Moran.

 

“I am so incredibly sad to hear about Erin. She was a wonderful, sweet, caring, talented woman. As I write this I can’t really comprehend this right now. A very painful loss. It gives me some comfort to know that she’s with Tom, Al, Pat and Garry. Rest In Peace, sweet Erin.” – Don Most (who played Ralph)

“Erin was a person who made everyone around her feel better. She truly cared about others first, a true angel. I will miss her so much, but know that she is in God’s hands. RIP sweet angel.” – Anson Williams (who played Potsie)

I will always remember Erin with her sweet smile that greeted me on the very first day I walked onto the set of Happy Days in 1974. She was only nine years old. For the next ten years that smile never faded. Unfortunately yesterday it did. My condolences go out to her family. She will always be locked in my heart.” – Henry Winkler (who played The Fonz)

“My best friend. My shinning armor. My example of unconditional love, grace, poise, dignity, strength, talent beyond measure, and above all Erin held my hand throughout my life. My love for Erin is forever. A beautiful person, no luckier woman than I to call Erin my loving best friend. When the casting door opened and I walked in and jumped on the couch to read for Jenny Piccalo we laughed our heads off then Erin threw her arms around me and our journey of friendship began. We were very close on set and grew even closer now. May we all be as gracious, elegant, respectful, kind and unconditionally loving as Erin Moran. ‘Jones!!! We will meet again my friend and the trouble we will cause will be exponential!’ xoxo.” – Cathy Silvers (who played Jenny)
