I am so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Dr. Munson(Rev) when he opened his practice in Oxford. He took care of all my "furkids". He was a most caring, compassionate, empathetic man. He was one of a kind and will truly be missed.

Rev was a classmate at Cornell. I remember him always with a smile, an upbeat approach to all challenges,and a hearty laugh that was unique. He loved the practice of veterinary medicine and he was a outstanding credit to our profession. Rest in peace Rev.
