Last April, Erin Moran, best known for her role as Joanie Cunnigham in the 70s sitcom Happy Days, suddenly passed away at age 56 following complications of Stage IV cancer.


In the days after her death, Scott Baio, who played Chachi alongside Moran in the Happy Days spin-off Joanie Loves Chachi wrote a Facebook post to shut down the nasty rumors surrounding the circumstances of her death.

"I'm also trying to process this loss. Erin was my very first real girlfriend," Baio wrote in the post. "I'm very heartbroken over her passing, especially since it was cancer."

A few weeks later, Moran's costars, including Baio, Anson Williams, Cathy Silvers, Ron Howard, Don Most and Marion Ross, reunited at a memorial to celebrate her life.

Now, the cast has once again reunited, and Ross, who played Moran's mother on the show for 11 seasons, took the opportunity to reflect on their loss. She revealed to CountryLiving.com that she and the rest of the cast would be getting together to honor Howard's late father Rance, but Moran's absence would definitely be felt.


"It will just be the family without Erin," she said. "I was very close to her and she was a very dear, precious girl."

Ross also had an important message to share as the one year anniversary of the actress's death approaches.
