I know this is years too late, but I am just seeing this. I don’t know if anyone will ever see this now but he was an outstanding vet and the best person in the world. He took such great care of my Gypsegirl for years and donated to his alma mater in her memory when I finally lost her. She was so sick at one time I drove to Oxford Veterinary Hospital to say goodbye only to have Darlene tell me that Rev had stayed up all night reading his medical books and thought he knew what the problem was. He gave me 3 more years with my precious girl. I will always be grateful and love this man. God always take the best and he was just the best. Lost him all too soon. Was feeling nostalgic and googled his name. So sorry to see he left this world far too soon.

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.
