Abraham's Brother Haran Dies
= = = Speed and Alcohol were factors in Haran's death
Soon after the broken idol incident, Terah's son Haran, who had been a gifted athlete at his high school, but failed to launch as an adult went out drinking and chowing down on bagels and herring with his buddies.
He then took a chariot on a wild ride through the city. Apparently he knew every curve in the road but one. He died in Ur of the Chaldeans, the place of his birth, according to police, speed and alcohol were factors in the event and he wasn't belted in. He was survived by:
• Terah, his father,
• Mamayar his mother who left Terah because he snored
• His two foxy party grrrrll daughters Milcha and Iscah
• A son who like him never really was able to make his mark, Lot
• His two brothers Abram and Nahor
After the burial, family and friends observed a seven day period of mourning. Terah's 401k account, his sons, lost considerable value in a single night. Haran was missed and some of his friends kept putting flowers on the spot he left the road and crashed for the next twenty years.
