To top it off a little info about the extended Moe Family.
In particular just listen to "Joe Lanni Moe" singing an incredibly good pop song,
The whole Moe family were close friends of my Wife Pat and myself throughout their stay in Europe from the late 50's onwards..
You do know that Tau was a Mormon and had TWO Wives and TWO families ?
Tau Moe was based in Brussels for most of the 50's-60's and 70's, and there's still some of his family playing in Denmark.
So Dorian (Daughter of Tau and Rose) who lives in Laie is NOT the last of the Moe Family...
