Former 'Happy Days' costars pay tribute to Erin Moran

Onscreen siblings and friends took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Joanie Cunningham.

On Saturday, we learned that Erin Moran passed away, from what is now being reported as complications from stage four cancer. Yesterday, we paid tribute to the Happy Days star on air and remembered her with a episode centering around her character, Joanie Cunningham.

Throughout the weekend, costars, colleagues and other former child stars took to social media to say goodbye to the actress.



Elsewhere, Cathy Silvers, who portrayed Joanie's friend Jenny Piccolo on Happy Days, shared her thoughts with People magazine.

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.

Anson "Potsie" Williams offered his condolences via an official statement. “Erin was a person who made everyone around her feel better,” he wrote. “She truly cared about others first, a true angel."
