    I had the pleasure of working with Larry at the Quinnipiack Valley Health District from 1978 -1985. He was a committed professional as well as a great colleague. My thoughts and prayers to Beverly and the family. Rest in Peace.

    I will miss you very much, my dear friend. Shipmates for almost 60 years.
    Now you belong to the ages.

    Rest in peace and smooth sailing, my dear friend.

    I have fond memories of Mr. Semple. As a kid I loved when my parents stopped at Larry and Beverly's home in CT on our way to Boston. We had the best time! Larry was always so funny and sweet to us and a great host. My dad thought of Larry as a good friend and I know he cherished their life long friendship. He was a good man. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.
