God Only Takes the Best

We cried when you passed away
We still cry today
Although we loved you dearly
We couldn’t make you stay

A Golden heart stopped beating
Now his hands are at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the Best.





John Makin was a very special man who will be missed by all who knew him.  He was a special friend to MAGRR in the short time that we came to know him.  He was always ready and willing to help us find wonderful homes for our Goldens as he knew it was a tribute to his beloved Rosie.  Rosie was a lucky MAGRR Tennessee girl who went to live with John and was his companion.  She will miss him, too.  We do know that we will all see John again and see that wonderful smile.   All of his friends in Tennessee would like to express our deep sympathy to his family.

MAGRR gratefully acknowledges the following donations to our organization in memory of John.  These gifts will go toward saving more Goldens like his Rosie and giving them a second chance at life.
