My condolences to the Bergin/Del Vechio family. I spent many hours over the years talking to Lina at Vinny's, laughing about everything imaginable, and talking about life- her life, my life, and life in general. It seemed that she wanted to get to know, and to help, every person she met. This was in addition to doing a great job raising four kids. She truly spent what time she had here making this a better place, and she will be missed. - - Paul Harvey, Somerville.

We met over a conversation about a dress with Lina and Carmen, we became acquaintances, we became Facebook friends, we talked about Relay For Life. Her smile and spirit inspired me all the time. Such an amazing and beautiful soul. I'm honored to have known her. My heartfelt condolences to all that loved her.

I have great memories of Lina for the four years we spent together in high school. After HS I would see Lina at Vinny's we always shared a hug and an update on each other's lives. I am so blessed to have been a piece of her journey here on earth. Our faith we shared and now Lina went home to be the Angel watching over her family and friends from the palm of God's hand where she will be till we meet again. RIP Lina you are truely an inspiration to everyone you came in contact with. Thank you for showing me how to be a strong women of faith and courage. Prayers for your family to find the strength to walk threw this most difficult time. May God send blessing to all who knew you. Ox
