I’m so sorry to hear of Dr. D’s passing. I always enjoyed working with him. I always loved arriving at work to see that he and I would be teaming up to run the minor care section. I knew our patients would be well-taken care of and in a timely manner. He was wise and witty. And boy, was he proud of his kids. My thoughts are with Dr. Bragg and the rest of the family. May you soon find comfort in the good memories. ❤️

"Lenny" was one of my early mentors and a true friend , personable, always congenial and light-hearted, first met him in Richmond at VACEP meeting, became good friends, then partners in lengthy career in emergency medicine with E.P.T.. I will always have fond memories of our friendship and work related stories.

I am so glad that I had the privilege to work with Dr. Dunford in the Minor Care at Sentara Bayside and Princess Anne. I learned a lot from him and enjoyed all the great stories he used to tell us about his past as a Doctor. He always treated his Patients with kindness and especially the Children making sure they had a sticker before they left the ER. To the Family I am deeply sorry for your loss and God Bless all of you. Dr. D may you Rest In Peace.
