We still can’t believe Joanie Cunningham is dead.

Erin Moran passed this weekend, leaving all her Happy Days costars to mourn. But no one spent more time onscreen with Erin than her spinoff partner.

Scott Baio, who got romantic with Erin on Happy Days and then two seasons of Joanie Loves Chachi, took to his Facebook on Sunday to pay his respects, writing:

“May people remember Erin for her contagious smile, warm heart, and animal loving soul. I always hoped she could find peace in her life. God has you now, Erin.”

Awww. We loved them together so much.

Erin was only 56 years old, such a frightfully young age that we had to wonder what happened.

Thankfully Harrison County, Indiana authorities did us the mercy of very quickly giving the public the most likely cause of death: Erin had stage 4 cancer.

In a press release, they wrote:

“On Saturday the 22nd day of April, 2017, Erin Marie Moran-Fleischmann passed away at her residence located in New Salisbury Indiana. A joint investigation into Mrs. Moran’s death was conducted by the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department and the Harrison County Coroner’s Office. A subsequent autopsy revealed that Mrs. Moran likely succumbed to complications of stage 4 cancer. Standard toxicology tests were performed and the results are pending however no illegal narcotics were found at the residence.”

Just 56. So heartbreaking.
