So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

    • He is buried in the Portland Cremetorium, Portland, Multnomah, Oregon !DEATH CLAIMS FORMER UTAHN Early Dancing Master and Musician Dies of Heart Failure in Portland, Ore. Moses Christensen, 49 years of age, formerly of Salt Lake, and for the past eighteen years active in music and dancing circles of the northwest, died early yesterday morning at his home in Portland, Ore. He was stricken October 20 with acute heart trouble and from that time but little hope for his recovery was held out. Mr. Christensen was born in Brigham City, Box Elder County, Utah, the third of five brothers, all of whom showed a strong inclination toward music and dancing as careers. With two elder brothers, Chris and Fred, and a younger brother, L.P. Christensen, a dancing school was started in Ogden thirty-two years ago and a band and orchestra organized. After four years of successful work in Ogden the Christensen brothers came to Salt Lake, first opening a dancing academy in the old Denhalter building on Third South street. Twenty-seven years ago they took charge of the music at Saltair, playing at the lake resort for a number of seasons. In 1898 Mr. Christensen married Miss Carrie Nichols of Salt Lake and soon thereafter moved to Boise, Idaho opening a school for dancing there, three years later removing to Portland, where he founded Christensen's dancing academy, an institution that has grown to be one of the largest in the country registering more than 700 pupils at the beginning of the present year. The development of this school, which occupied the time of Mr. Christensen, his wife, and five assistants, resulted in the founding of the American national normal school of dancing, for which it was his hope to secure government support in the establishment of a national ballet course in the schools of the country. Mr. Christensen, who was a violinist of marked ability, found time in the midst of his other labors to organize and build up Portland's first symphony orchestra, serving as director for several years and making it one of the most efficient symphony organizations of the northwest. For the last ten years it has been Mr. Christensen's custom to go to New York each year to continue his advanced studies in dancing and he usually stopped in Ogden and Salt Lake, both going and returning. His last visit here was on his way to New York, he and his party returning to Portland by the northern route because the national convention of dancing masters had been brought to Portland. Mr. Christensen is survived by his widow and one son, Victor, 21 years of age, a prominent young American violinist; three brothers, Chris of Ogden, Fred of Seattle, and L.P. Christensen of Salt Lake, the latter being director of orchestras in the city schools; two sisters, Mrs. Christina Thompson and Mrs. Rinda Billings, both of Brigham City. He was a member of the Masonic lodge of Portland, of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and of the Portland International Rotary. The elder brother Chris, L.P. of Salt Lake and his brother-in-law, Charles A. Nichols of Salt Lake left last night for Portland to attend the funeral services, which will probably be held Tuesday.
