October 9, 1996 marked a horrible day in "Nightmare on the 13th Floor" history. On that day, our very own Father Bergin, portrayed by the actor Harvey Vernon, passed away. He will be deeply missed. His list of film credits are quite impecible, but "Nightmare on the 13th Floor" will always be my favorite. I am deeply saddened by his passing, and even more so in knowing that I will never get a chance to interview him and record his thoughts on this film. Father Bergin, you will be deeply missed. You have made such an impact on TV and in movies, and words can't express our loss.
