Henry Winkler remembers his last phone conversation with Tom Bosley.
At the time, Bosley was suffering from lung cancer. "We talked about his strength and that it was coming back," Winkler, 64, who played Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli on Happy Days, tells PEOPLE.
"He had just gone through several bouts of chemo, and you always heard him in a positive, forward attitude. He was always looking forward, you know. At 83, I hope that's me."
