Children of God - Abner's Funeral (TSC) - 1971

On May 10, 1971, Jethro and Abner went on motorcycles to check a pond near the ranch buildings for possible drinking water. Texas was months into a drought, and TSC’s usual water hole was mostly baked clay. Abner ended up in the hospital that evening with a skull fracture, thrown from his bike at a turn in the road that Jethro had negotiated with ease. Abner went to be with the Lord that night.
