Gone but not forgotten, these personalities certainly had and impact on television.

Her husband, Steven Fleischmann, wrote in an open letter posted in late April on a Facebook page for Moran's co-star Scott Baio that the actress had been ill for months because of complications from skin cancer.

At one point, she needed a feeding tube to eat, Fleischmann wrote.

"The coroner said even if she was in the hospital being pumped full of antibiotics she still would not [have] made it," Fleischmann wrote. "He said it was the best that she was with me and went in her sleep."
