"A subsequent autopsy revealed that Mrs. Moran likely succumbed to complications of stage 4 cancer".

"Our memorial at Happy Days Farm for dear Erin was a precious gathering of our loving cast of Happy Days!".

Moran, who played Joanie Cunningham on the sitcom, died after a battle with Squamous cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer.


Baio noted in his post that they were "celebrating the life of #ErinMoran".

Any controversy aside, the cast had a chance to pay tribute to Moran, who played Joanie Cunningham from 1974 to 1984 on both "Happy Days" and its spinoff, "Joanie Loves Chachi".

Scott Baio, Anson Williams, Don Most, Cathy Silvers and Ron Howard came together to share memories of Moran, who passed away on April 22 at the age of 56.


"I am just devastated to hear about Erin's passing", Marion told Entertainment Tonight at the time. "These people never attack the press for getting the story wrong about heroin".

Moran, 56, has since been laid to rest in a private memorial, which featured a bittersweet reunion of her Happy Days pals. "For me, you do drugs or drink, you're gonna die", he said.

After news of Moran's death, Baio took to Twitter to lovingly remember his co-star.


One of the Happy Days stars notably missing from the group photo was Henry Winkler, who played the Fonz. "The Erin event really did hit hard". "She was so cute and bright and great on the set of our show". It gives me some comfort to know that she's with Tom, Al, Pat and Garry. "When I think of her then, which is how I choose to think of her, she was this feisty, spirited little girl", he said.
